Meet the Author

Zane Greyberg, born Leo Kloppman in Brooklyn, New York, has held a variety of jobs, from chicken flicker to pickle-maker, before he turned to writing. His first book, Shangri-Latkes and Other Lost Horizons was published in 1999 and completely befuddled critics. Roderick Pish-Tipple of the Hackensack Jewish Weekly said, "You call this poetry? It doesn't even rhyme. What's with this Greyberg guy-he drinks maybe?"

Mr. Zaneberg lives, he says, "wherever the wind blows and the cream cheese is fresh."
