This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. 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. 'An inspired work of a great writer ... Fallada is a genius. The "Little Man" is Mr Everybody' Beryl Bainbridge 'There are chapters which pluck the nerves...there are chapters which raise the spirits like a fine day in the country. The truth and variety of the characterization is superb...it recognizes that the world is not to be altered with moral fables' Graham Greene 'Fallada deserves high praise for having reported so realistically, so truthfully, with such closeness to life' Herman Hesse 'Fallada at his best' Philip Hensher 'Performs the most astounding task, of taking us to a moment before history' Los Angeles Review of Books

This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. Hans Fallada was a drug addict, womanizer, alcoholic, jailbird and thief. Yet he was also one of the most extraordinary storytellers of the twentieth century, whose novels, including Alone in Berlin, portrayed ordinary people in terrible times with a powerful humanity. This acclaimed biography, newly revised and completely updated, tells the remarkable story of Hans Fallada, whose real name was Rudolf Ditzen. Jenny Williams chronicles his turbulent life as a writer, husband and father, shadowed by mental torment and long periods in psychiatric care. She shows how Ditzen's decision to remain in Nazi Germany in 1939 led to his self-destruction, but also made him a unique witness to his country's turmoil. More Lives Than One unpicks the contradictory, flawed and fascinating life of a writer who saw the worst of humanity, yet maintained his belief in the decency of the 'little man'.

Excerpt: "THE ALIEN THROUGH the quiet night, crystalline with the pervading spirit of the frost, under prairie skies of mystic purple pierced with the glass-like glinting of the stars, fled Antoine. Huge and hollow-sounding with the clatter of the pinto's hoofs hung the night above and about—lonesome, empty, bitter as the soul of him who fled. A weary age of flight since sunset; and now the midnight saw the thin-limbed, long-haired pony slowly losing his nerve, tottering, rasping in the throat. With pitiless spike-spurred heels the rider hurled the beast into the empty night."

Now an uneasy peace exists on the island, between the colonists and the once-noble met'Oc, a family in exile on a remote stronghold for their role in a vaguely remembered civil war. The met'Oc are tolerated, in spite of occasional cattle stealing raids, since they alone possess the weapons considered necessary protection in the event of the island's savages becoming hostile. Intelligent, resourceful, and determined, Gignomai is the youngest brother in the current generation of met'Oc. He is about to realise exactly what is expected of him; and what it means to defy his family. Books by K.J.

Three Roses: Living with Muscular Dystrophy and Marrying the Ideal Woman introduces a man who knew from his early childhood that he would face life with the ever-present reality of muscular dystrophy. Despite the challenges this condition presented him, Michael S. Hudecki achieved both professional success and personal contentment. His memoir relates the circumstances of his childhood, follows him through his academic years, and relates how, while pursuing his PhD in biology at the University of Buffalo, he came to know and to love the woman of his dreams—Rajmohini Sebastian, a Fulbright scholar from India. Despite three years of living apart following their graduation, they reunited at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Meeting her after she cleared customs checks, he presented her with a dozen red roses and three yellow roses, one for each year they spent apart. They married soon after that. Three Roses opens a window into the life of someone who faces life with courage and faith, who makes a valued and lasting contribution to the world’s body of knowledge concerning muscular dystrophy, and recognizes and follows the beckoning of his heart.
