Letters to the Editor: Jul/Aug. 2012

To the Editor,

At dinner last night, my longtime friend Carl Djerassi told me about The Vienna Review and showed me the interview you did with him in a recent issue.

I have to admit that I was pretty surprised by this, since I’ve lived and worked in Vienna on-and-off for nearly 38 years and yet never knew about your work.

And I can see from the VR web site that this is all to my disadvantage.

As a writer myself with a dozen or more published volumes of popular science under my belt, I was very pleased to know about the VR and about the monthly Salon. I would love to participate.

To the Editor,

Great interview with Dr. Carl Djerassi [“Kaffeehaus: The Poet of Progressive Science”, TVR, June 2012] Congratulations! I admire Dr. Djerassi very much; we used to be neighbours in California.

The Vienna Review has gotten much more interesting to read lately. Thanks.

Marianne Herwig, Vienna


To the Editor,

Thank you very much for the wonderful article of our event [“Portrait of the Artist as Diplomat”, TVR, June 2012]. I highly appreciate what you are doing for the IDEA Society.

Stefan Stoev, Vienna
