    • Q:
    • Is he un-American?
    • Why is he unfairly unfamous?
    • A:
    • Astère had a monkey’s sense of climbing. The Flemish tree-trimmer was like a lyric winding up and up, stopping to roll a smoke or to send his chainsaw down for refueling. He spent hours up in the ancient oak tree cutting off branches. He was more natural in the huge tree than on the ground.
