From the Publisher"Adorno’s childhood always served him as a recollected utopiaof protected bliss. The publication of his extensive correspondencewith his parents well after that paradise was lost demonstrates itsenduring power in his adult emotional life. Poignant, loving,anxious, at turns intellectually serious and childishly goofy,these letters not only testify to the strength of hisfamily’s bonds, but also provide invaluable evidence of thestruggles of German exiles in their new homeland. Scrupulouslytranslated and exhaustively annotated, Adorno’s Letters tohis Parents is a document of unique importance for anyoneinterested in the history of the Frankfurt School and for themigration as a whole."
