Take, for instance, Sholem Asch is a beautiful writer but he suffers from a certain defect. If you would visualize Asch's writing, like a tree with colors and ornaments. But Schneier is so realistic. He grows in the darkness in a very intimate relationship and you don't feel that this is pornagraphic. It is so realistic. But Asch has a narrow scope. The style of his writing is too ornamental.
You know? I'm beginning to feel a medieval Monk's contempt for existence. First, a year and a half out of work. And now I have a room. It is so dark. Besides, that atmosphere. Do not misunderstand. I live with Galician Jews. I don't like to condemn a people. It is account of their talk. They are very small and petty. And they have a right to be small. They had a very poor country. So they have acquired very ugly characteristics. When I came to America I was running to Austria. Why did I run to Austria? Because I had there a cousin. A very prominent man.
