DESCRIPTION

With the moral stamina and intellectual pose of a twentieth-century Titan, this slightly built, duitful, unassuming chemist set out systematically to remember the German hell on earth, steadfastly to think it through, and then to render it comprehensible in lucid, unpretentious prose.

He was himself a magically endearing man, the most delicately forceful enchanter I've ever known - PHILIP ROTH
