A Discord of Trumpets
A Discord of Trumpets
By Claud Cockburn
Simon and Schuster, 1956, 314 pp

The Week, a prewar newsletter about high politics written on the assumption that rumors are, after all, facts, was Mr. Cockburn's personal creation. His amusing memoirs have some of the same qualities, but fewer inside stories about high places. He leaves unclear whether he has backtracked on the journey he made from the London Times to the Daily Worker.
