The Last Escape
New Haven is home to some of the finest pizzas in North America and tonight Maryn and I tried a heavenly mashed potato pizza from Bar (Bru Room). While Bar is not as historic as Frank Pepe's or Sally's, it still serves a mean pie.
I'm not leaving until next week but tomorrow Maryn is flying home for the American Thanksgiving break. While she makes her way to Nova Scotia, I'll be staying in New York to attend Bruno Schulz's "The Last Escape" performed by The Wroclaw Puppet Theatre at The Jewish Community Center.
"The Last Escape" is the story of a pensioner trapped in his room, trying to break through his own loneliness and despair by recalling his past and conjuring up a new world where time exists on many levels. Schulz, Poland's preeminent Jewish writer, has been an inspiration for such writers as Cynthia Ozick, John Updike, and Philip Roth.
