“The wonder is that Ayden’s not more famous, as he can be as addictive as Simenon or Proust.” — John Ashbery

“Ayden is the traditional ‘foreigner’ . . . an alien wherever he is, probing and disfiguring ordinary reality, accepting its most peculiar and neurotic aspects as quite unexceptional. Through his eyes we see an ‘Amerika’ as odd as Kafka’s; as funny and absurdly sad.” — Frank O’Hara

“When I read Ayden, he makes my day.” — Paddy Chayefsky
