A GERMAN CLASSIC FROM A FORGOTTEN AUTHOR

Schlump is seventeen, a romantic, a chancer and a dreamer. It's 1915 so naturally he volunteers for war. In France he is assigned an administrative position in a small town and has a marvellous time. But when he gets to the trenches, where death and mindless destruction are the everyday, he starts to understand something about war. Funny, brutal and charming, here’s the First World War from the perspective of the inimitable Schlump.

Review:

"The best of German war books so far" (J. B. Priestley)

" Schlump…was considered anti-nationalistic, anti-heroic, philanthropic, pacifist, pro-French, humanistic, European, quite good-humoured and well-written. A bright book from a dark time… The book burners were completely right: an un-German book" ( Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)

"Grimm’s major achievement is his ability to balance such unsentimental accounts of people’s wartime sufferings alongside the unfailing delight of Schlump’s gauche charm" ( New Books in German)

"

A delightful rediscovery... The republication of this unstintingly humane novel fills the gap in the history of First World War literature

" ( Süddeutsche Zeitung)

"A thoroughly unconventional First World War novel, part fable, part documentary […] non-nationalistic, Francophile, astute, romantic and accurate" ( FAS)
