Celebrated columnist Jimmy Breslin describes himself as "a loud, talkative, bar-room type." Others call him a master of the Queens' English. Queens, New York, that is. Whether he's satirizing a bumbling band of mafiosi or giving a voice to an illegal immigrant worker, he's one of America's most colorful newspaper men. Neal Conan talks with Jimmy Breslin on Talk of the Nation from NPR News.
