Previously unpublished stories by the bestselling author of Alone in Berlin. In September 1925, Hans Fallada handed himself in to the police. Not yet a bestselling author, Fallada had repeatedly embezzled funds to finance his alcohol and morphine addictions. Desperate to escape his demons, he sought a prison cell. Now court documents from Falladas imprisonment have recently been uncovered, and with them a never-before-seen collection of short stories. Through complex characters at odds with society, Fallada explored the lived the lives of women and male outsiders. These stories reveal to a new generation of readers Falladas immense gifts and his intense inner battles.

But what makes them remarkable is that they prefigure his final works. -- Geordie Williamson * The Saturday Paper * Psychologically acute. * i newspaper * A precious treat for Fallada fans: Lilly and her Slave tells a MeToo story from 1920s Berlin. -- Marc Reichwein * Literarische Welt * These tales from the estate of Hans Fallada are a gem for fans, as are the circumstances of their discovery. * Welt am Sonntag *

Övrig information

Hans Fallada (18931947) was the pen name of German author Rudolf Ditzen, whose books were international bestsellers on a par with those of his countrymen Thomas Mann and Hermann Hesse. He opted to stay in Germany when the Nazis came to power, and eventually had a nervous breakdown when he was put under pressure to write anti-Semitic books. He was cast into a Nazi insane asylum, where he secretly wrote The Drinker. Immediately after the war he wrote his last two novels, Nightmare in Berlin and Alone in Berlin, but he died before either book could be published.
