Afternoon reading, found in a manilla envelope in files from my parents' basement, along with a xeroxed copy of Anthropological Aspects of Language: Animal Categories and Verbal Abuse, by Edmund Leach: an 18 page typewritten copy of The Tribulation of the European Spirit
An essay written by Klaus Mann in 1949, in France, introduced and read by Manfred Wolfson over KPFA, Oct. 5 1958.
The "introductory remarks" go to a page and a half. The essay itself, I found here, under a different title, and with an additional first paragraph.
---

Published as Europe’s Search for a New Credo in the magazine Tomorrow, in 1949
Wolfson might of given it to my parents. The timing is right.
