Written by Fadiman, it is a scathing review of The Mandarins. He comments that "I am sure of two things: a. On a smaller scale, this will repeat its French success, for reasons which have nothing to do with its literaty value, which is questionable, but which have much to do with its talk-value, its scandal-value." "I have tried to make it clear that the reasons why this interesting book baffles me and in the end angers me, because I know how much it means to you, and how many painful and conscientious hours Donald has spend on it (it shows it too--the translation is brilliant). I would not have you think that I do not deeply respect your opinions; if I did not, I would not have spent twenty precious (and by no means wasted) hours on The Mandarins." He closes out the letter by asking them to "Give my regards to Mrs. Sartre, and tell her to stop contemplating her own soul and look at the whole world, in time and space. She is in a way a lucky woman--she still has before her the wonderful experience of growing up."; shelved case 13.
