No Sinclair here, just a Lithuanian-American anecdote. My paternal grandmother (a full-blooded Lithuanian: born in Philadelphia, of immigrant parents) had the maiden name "Yackus". My father learned years later that there's no letter "y" in Lithuanian-- the name had originally been "Jackus" (pronounced the same), but the parents changed the spelling once the kids started coming home from school with black eyes.

What was the other book, if you don't mind me asking?

Carlos

Snyder's The Reconstruction of Nations : Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, Belarus, 1569-1999. Recommended, incidentally.

I would like to purchase a copy of The Jungle, translated into Lithuanian.

Where can I find it?
