The Hidden Damage

James Stern

An unusual book, first published in the USA in 1947 and in Britain in 1990 (by our own Chelsea Press).  Stern chronicles his time in Germany immediately after WW2, when he and a friend, the poet W H Auden, went there as observers on behalf of the U S Government.  For Stern, a fine short story writer, the assignment sets off unsuspected resonances both with his own childhood in Edwardian Ireland and with his previous years as an amorous young man in Germany itself.  A new introduction was written for the English edition by the late Sir Stephen Spender. - review by John Wyse Jackson (SeŠn)
