Indeed.  Surely Black is significantly better in the initial position than in that ending.

Play simply 9...Qe5 10.c3 and now either 10...Bc5 or 10...Nf6
Your "compensation" is there since white decided to develop backwards. Just don't commit the mistake to analyse this position using an engine, the stupid thing will always tell you that white has a "plus-something".
The 9.Nxa7 variation, on the other hand, is surely something to worry about if you are Black. It's not great fun to play an endgame a pawn down with no real fireworks onboard.

Isn't 8.Qe2 Nf6 9.Nxa7+ worrying enough?

Balan - Milenkovic,J [C63]

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.
