Product Details


“His most ambitious novel … deeply moving … [Fallada] has evoked more than one can bear, but not more than it is necessary to learn, to keep and to understand.”  —Alfred Kazin, The New York Times (1938)

“The ideal summer read.” —Katherine Powers, The Boston Globe

“An unmissably brilliant portrait of Berlin before the Nazis.” —The Times of London

“Outstanding . . . his novels, whatever their ultimate position in the literary rankings, are simply much more entertaining than the tomes produced by the usual German suspects, Mann, Hesse, Grass, Böll . . . if you fancy a book to take you right through your holidays and any possible delays at the airport, you couldn’t do better than Wolf Among Wolves.” —Tibor Fischer, Telegraph (UK)

“Out of the multitude of episodes and a large cast of characters, the picture of post-War Germany during the terror of the inflation period, comes into reality, as in almost no other book we have had . . . A human documentand a moving picture of a Germany gone mad.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Fallada handles [the characters] not morbidly but with a Hogarthian exuberance and a tough humor, infusing into even those dying spirits the life of his copious imagination . . . Fallada’s best book.” The New Yorker (1938)

“What other living German novelist shares with Fallada the power to grip the reader on the first page and hold him unremittingly through 1100 more?” —Bayard Q. Morgan, World Literature Today (1938)

Praise for Hans Fallada

“Fallada can be seen as a hero, a writer-hero who survived just long enough to strike back at his oppressors.” —Alan Furst

“Fallada deserves high praise for having reported realistically, so truthfully, with such closeness to life.”  —Herman Hesse
