Leopold's Bloom

You'll love this Jerry,

Thomas Keneally's briefcase broke while he was visiting the states on a book tour, so he called in to a bag shop. The owner of the shop was a Mr Leopold Page (a Beverly Hills bag-seller), formerlly known as Leopold Pfefferberg.

Mr Pfefferberg and his wife Mischa were saved from Auschwitz by Oskar Schindler.

Leopold told his story to Thomas, and so the book and the film Schindler's list came to be.

All because the briefcase broke at that point of a book tour.

So while you celebrate Leopold Bloom thius weekend, I'll remember Leopold Pfefferberg instead.

Enjoy the kidneys...
