QuotationMoved by S. N. Behrman's beautiful book on Max Beerbohm [Portrait of Max, New York, 1960]. That is important for me-the lost side of my life. Note Brecht loved Kipling and Beerbohm hated him. I think this is very significant. Brecht-something of the self I wanted briefly to become when I immigrated (I ceased to want to be Beerbohm).
