Produktbeschreibung
From the bestselling author of Alone in Berlin, his acclaimed novel of a young couple trying to survive life in 1930s Germany 'Nothing so confronts a woman with the deathly futility of her existence as darning socks' A young couple fall in love, get married and start a family, like countless young couples before them. But Lämmchen and 'Boy' live in Berlin in 1932, and everything is changing. As they desperately try to make ends meet amid bullying bosses, unpaid bills, monstrous mothers-in-law and Nazi streetfighters, will love be enough? The novel that made Hans Fallada's name as a writer, Little Man, What Now? tells the story of one of European literature's most touching couples and is filled with an extraordinary mixture of comedy and desperation. It was published just before Hitler came to power and remains a haunting portrayal of innocents whose world is about to be swept away forever. This brilliant new translation by Michael Hofmann brings to life an entire era of austerity and turmoil in Weimar Germany.

Autorenporträt
Hans Fallada was born in Germany in 1893. His life was checkered by a failed adolescent suicide pact in which his friend died, addiction to morphine and alcohol, periods of incarceration in prison and mental hospitals, and brushes with the Nazi regime. His most famous novels include Little Man, What Now?, The Drinker and Alone in Berlin, written in 24 days. Fallada died weeks before its publication, in February 1947 in Berlin.
Rezensionen
Fallada deserves high praise for having reported so realistically, so truthfully, with such closeness to life.
Herman Hesse

Superb.
Graham Greene

In a publishing hat trick, Melville House allows English-language readers to sample Fallada s vertiginous variety accompanying the release of Michael Hoffman s splendid translation of Every Man Dies Alone with the simultaneous publication of excellent English versions of Fallada s two best-known novels, Little Man, What Now? (translated by Susan Bennett) and The Drinker (translated by Charlotte and A.L. Lloyd). In his probing afterword to Little Man, What Now?, Philip Brady ponders the question of why the book isn't better-known today: Enduring success is one thing, immediate impact is something different, and clearly the immediate impact of Fallada s novel was undeniable. Given our current economic circumstances, the book may have a second chance at impact and endurance.
