Background Information:
Paul Thomas Mann was a German novelist, short story writer, social critic, philanthropist, essayist, and the 1929 Nobel Prize in Literature laureate. His highly symbolic and ironic epic novels and novellas are noted for their insight into the psychology of the artist and the intellectual. [wiki]

The Equinox Cooperative Press published 16 books between 1932 and 1937. It was founded by Ward, his wife May McNeer (a journalist and author), Henry Hart (an editor at Scribners), and six others. In all its decisions, Equinox was guided by a belief in the democratic process. Such idealism usually withers as soon as it blossoms but the Equinox Cooperative Press succeeded.
