THE SLEEPWALKERS

With this epic trilogy, Hermann Broch established himself as one of the great innovators of modern literature, a visionary writer-philosopher the equal of James Joyce, Thomas Mann, or Robert Musil.  Even as he grounded his narratives in the intimate daily life of Germany, Broch was identifying the oceanic changes that would shortly sweep that life into the abyss.

THE DRINKER

Written in an encrypted notebook while he was incarcerated in a Nazi insane asylum and discovered after his death, The Drinker may be Hans Fallada's most breath taking piece of craftsmanship. It is an intense yet absorbing study of the descent into drunkenness by an intelligent man who fears he's lost it all. Moving, often funny, and told in a galvanizing bravura style.

LITTLE MAN, WHAT NOW?

This is the book that led to Hans Fallada's downfall with the Nazis. The story of a young couple struggling to survive the German economic collapse was a worldwide sensation and was made into an acclaimed Hollywood movie produced by Jews, leading Hitler to ban Fallada's work from being translated.
