As much as I want to like an antiracist, antiwar socialist writer, his stories seem a little too pat, looking for values in chaos rather than chaos in values as modernists do. It's not surprising that he settled and eventually died in East Germany, and became a teller of gemütlich socialist fables for the collective hearth there.
