Description

Informationen zum Autor Prior to WWII, the novels of German writer Hans Fallada (born Rudolf Ditzen) were international bestsellers. But when Jewish producers in Hollywood made his 1932 novel, Little Man, What Now? into a film, the rising Nazis began to take note of him. By the end of World War II he'd suffered an alcohol-fueled nervous breakdown and was in a Nazi insane asylum, where he nonetheless managed to write--in code--the brilliant subversive novel, The Drinker. After the war, Fallada went on to write Every Man Dies Alone, but he died in 1947 of a morphine overdose, just before it was published. Klappentext Written just before the Nazis came to power, this darkly enchanting novel tells the simple story of a young couple trying to eke out a decent life amidst an economic crisis that's transforming their country into a place of anger and despair. It was an international bestseller upon its release, and made into a Hollywood movie--by Jewish producers, which prompted the rising Nazis to begin paying ominously close attention to Hans Fallada, even as his novels held out stirring hope for the human spirit. It is presented here in its first-ever uncut translation, by Susan Bennett, and with an afterword by Philip Brady that details the calamitous background of the novel, its worldwide reception, and how it turned out to be, for the author, a dangerous book.
