“Every time I take my x-acto blade to the tender page of a book\, I see my longdeceased g randfather’s face before me. He is not happy. I am committing the Jewish eq uivalent of a mortal sin and believe me\, I feel guilty. So powerful is my drive to rearrange and juxtapose\, however\, that I am willing to risk the wrath of my ancestors to accomplish my mission.”
