ABOUT BRUNO SCHLEINSTEIN: The unwanted son of a prostitute, Bruno S. (Bruno Schleinstein) was beaten so severely by his mother at age 3 that he became temporarily deaf. This led to his placement in a mental institution; he spent the next 23 years in various institutions, often running afoul of the law. Despite this past, he a self-taught painter and musician; while these were his favorite occupations, he was also forced to take jobs in factories such as driving a fork lift.
