A sprawling saga of the collapse of a culture, its economy and government and the common man's struggle to survive it all. Set in Weimer Germany soon after their defeat in WWI, a young gambler looses it all in Berlin and flees the city for the countryside. However, he is greeted by a defeated German army that has camped there to foment insurrection. Somehow, amidst all the chaos, he finds romance. This fast-moving thriller is also a fascinating piece of history, written in lyrical prose that carries a powerful emotional punch.

I think this is the one where he describes the inexorable movement of the Germans to Nazism and the tragedy that befalls decent citizens.

Fallada continues to impress. I was surprised to see this on the Express shelves, and had to jump right into it, having loved Every Man Dies Alone and The Drinker. This is also excellent reportage; tragic, real, funny, painful, ecstatic, and desperate. So much life; and so true to life.

Fallada screwed up on this one. His other books are fantastic,but this one is one long meandering boring tale of I dont know what. I gave up at the half way point.
