No not my grandad – but the grandad of Hollywood director Mike Nichols – you know ‘The Graduate’ and loads of other films. How strange is that? Does not compute? Discovered this last night after listening to the very affable and erudite Gabriel Kuhn talk about his newly edited book of Landauer’s writings called ‘Revolution’. I’m a big fan of Landauer because he tried to make a revolution in circumstances far from his own choosing. He could have buggered off to Berlin and continued his writing but he was there in Bavaria and decided to seize the time and paid the price. I also discovered he was the man who wrote ‘You can’t blow up a social relationship’ .Top geezer.
