moinous: well when federman arrived in the studio the lovely sharp lady said -- vous savez monsieur federman vous etes un grand ecrivain --

moinous: fed and I were being interviewed by this sharp lady for french radio - a 4 hour interview which will be broadcast 5 days in the row - each day a different part
