Monk Mink Pink Punk #7

contents first page

First, I would like to thank you, the Reader, for taking the time to explore the thoughts and ideas of Iancu Dumitrescu and Ana-Maria Avram. I have painstakingly translated two interviews with them from French that appear on their website. The interviews are about 30,000 words spread out over 7 sections. I think every word is worth reading, and I have tried very hard to make it as readable as possible. One of the fantastic things about publishing something on the web is that changes and updates can be made at any time. Please do not hesitate to inform me if something appears unclear or confused. I know the translation could be improved.
Secondly, I would like to greatly thank Ana-Maria and Iancu for taking the time out of their busy schedules to patiently correct my translations and answer my clarifying questions. Without their involvement, this would be a confusing morass of mistaken assumptions. I have attempted to summarize their work elsewhere, and I assume that if you are reading this, you already have some familiarity with their exceptionally invigorating works (if not, I urge you to correct this deficiency at once!)
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments on these pages. I can't even estimate how many hours I poured over these texts in the hope that someday they may be of some use or value to someone.
For that someone, I welcome you.
