Letter to [Stefan] Schimanski, 1945 May 12.

Miller expresses surprise at Schimanski's interest in Jakob Wasserman and offers him "Maurizius forever." If he had more time he would do "Kerkhoven." Although most of Wasserman does not interest him, he would like to read "Dialogue with Arium" which he asks Schimanski to obtain for him in London, and "My life as a German and a Jew." He thanks Schimanski for putting him in touch with F.F.F. Hill and inquires if Claude Houghton has been asked to contribute to the symposium. Miller hopes that Drummond will bring out Wallace Fowlie's book for which he is willing to write a preface. He closes with a recommendation to read Erich Frank's book.

Consistently popular in his day, his intense, psychological analysis of modern society and religion sometimes became too abstract for general audiences. From the description...
