THE DOCTOR FAUSTUS DOSSIER
ARNOLD SCHOENBERG, THOMAS MANN, AND THEIR CONTEMPORARIES 1930 - 1951
This complete edition of letters and documents between A. Schoenberg and T. Mann brings together two towering figures of twentieth-century music and literature, both of whom found refuge in Los Angeles during the Nazi era. Culminating in the famous dispute over Mann's novel Doctor Faustus, the correspondence, diary entries, and related articles provide a glimpse inside the private and public lives of these two great artists, the outstanding figures of the German-exile community in California. In the thicket of the controversy was tH. Adorno, then a budding philosopher, whose contribution to the Faustus affair would make enemies of both families.
