FOR THE  GERMAN PUBLISHING [SEE LINK BELOW] as far as I am concerned in a similar manner in which he withdrew his play UNTERTAGSBLUES from the Ruhrfestpiele competion [and was never going to accept another price but has accepted the Heine and Thomas Mann prizes since] because he neither wanted to win nor to lose with his weakest play; and this time I think he does not want to loose with one of his best books; and this way of handling the  matter assures him and the wonderful book at least of some publicity; in common these two events have our great author's vulnerable vanity and management of career;
