Eytan Pessen

Eytan Pessen was born, to his mild astonishment, in Israel. After an eclectic upbringing he calls no place home and speaks many languages poorly, but with almost a convincing accent. He's ready to retire (indeed has been so since he was ten), to become a perpetual student studying trivia, but until then works at the Stuttgart Opera. He reads the Herald Tribune for the crossword (which he can solve, sometimes, on Mondays). Gluttony, poetry and smoking are his great joys in life (but since quitting, he concentrates on the first two). Although he'd like to spell, he can't.
