Wine from Two Glasses (the Adam Lecture for 1990) is a quasi-autobiographical meditation, a literary work, rather than a scholarly lecture, especially in this elaborated and revised printed version.

Among other things, it tells the story behind the story of the author's cousin, who wrote a diary for a few weeks before committing suicide in Nazi-occupied West Ukraine in 1943. (See Menard title, I'm not even a Grownup).

Wine from Two Glasses explores the links between documentary and 'a rhetoric to think atrocity'. The author engages with writers such as George Oppen and Vaclav Havel, Primo Levi and Paul Celan, and the film-maker Claude Lanzmann, and examines private and public concerns in the post-Auschwitz and post-Hiroshima world.
