Correction: he referred to himself as “half-Jewish” in the book.
In his memoir, Private Parts, 1993, he refers to himself as “half-Italian” and states “my grandparents immigrated from Russia and Italy”. He has since admitted that he claimed Italian ancestry in an effort to deflect anti-Semitism.
Agree with my fellow countryman @muricansareallmutts this time.
Sbagli a pensare che tutti gli utenti di questo sito siano ispanici o chissà che cosa. Te l’ho già detto non so quante volte che quella cosa della Finlandia era uno scherzo di @Follers, infatti io manco l’ho tirata in ballo. Depongo l’ascia di guerra…notte.
