Praise

“A lost classic of anti-war literature is revived in a fresh, vigorous translation…a welcome contribution to the literature of the Great War and its discontents.” —Kirkus

“The boisterous and often brutal story of a young German’s military service during World War I, Grimm’s long-lost novel is a clear-eyed account of life during wartime…Grimm’s is a bloody picaresque with a fairy tale hero at its center…. Present-day readers will be touched and saddened by his enthusiasm.” —Publishers Weekly

“An unusual, original and charming addition to that great army of WWI novels.” —The Times (London)
 
“A century after the Great War, Schlump reappears in Jamie Bulloch’s excellent new translation and the extraordinary story of its rediscovery probably warrants a novel of its own…exceptional.” —The Independent
 
“One of the great First World War novels, about a German soldier in a French village, who falls in love with it. It’s full of criticism of how the war was conducted by Germany, so when Hitler came in, it was burnt.” —Michael Morpurgo, Daily Mail
 
“The best of German war books so far.” —J.B. Priestley
