Product Details


“The force of this remarkable memoir derives as much from the insights it offers into the mind and beliefs of the writer as into those of its subject.” —Publishers Weekly

“Walter Benjamin [was] perhaps the most subtle, intuitive, and creative critic of the age….Since Scholem is himself a great scholar and thinker, since the intellectual comradeship between the two was so intense for a long time, the commingling of their thoughts comes to be even more revealing than the life-facts themselves….An invaluable document about not merely one but two of the century’s most profound minds.” —Kirkus Reviews
