9780141198552: Alone in Berlin (Slipcase Edition)

A slipcased hardback edition of Hans Fallada's bestselling novel, translated by Michael Hofmann, with the original first Penguin edition artwork.

Berlin, 1940, and the city is filled with fear. At the house on 55 Jablonski Strasse, its various occupants try to live under Nazi rule in their different ways: the bullying Hitler loyalists the Persickes, the retired judge Fromm and the unassuming couple Otto and Anna Quangel. Then the Quangels receive the news that their beloved son has been killed fighting in France. Shocked out of their quiet existence, they begin a silent campaign of defiance, and a deadly game of cat and mouse develops between the Quangels and the ambitious Gestapo inspector Escherich. When petty criminals Kluge and Borkhausen also become involved, deception, betrayal and murder ensue, tightening the noose around the Quangels' necks ...

Review:

Hans Fallada's Alone in Berlin is one of the most extraordinary and compelling novels ever written about World War II. Ever. Fallada lived through the Nazi hell, so every word rings true - this is who they really were: the Gestapo monsters, the petty informers, the few who dared to resist. Please, do not miss this.

Review:
