Commentary Magazine


To the Editor:

I found David Boroff’s biographical sketch, “Papa,” in the May issue of Commentary extremely moving. . . . What impresses me most is the sympathy that controls his intelligence and his art. Mr. Boroff’s papa is finally seen not only as a type, but also as an individual: suffering, somewhat pathetic, somewhat comical—and yet with integrity and stature.
