Hans Fallada

Tales from the Underworld: Selected Shorter Fiction

€12,95

Features short stories.These are darkly funny, searingly honest short stories from Hans Fallada, author of bestselling Alone in Berlin. In these stories, criminals lament how hard it is to scrape a living by breaking and entering; families measure their daily struggles in marks and pfennigs; a convict makes a desperate leap from a moving train; a ring - and with it a marriage - is lost in a basket of potatoes. Here, as in his novels, Fallada is by turns tough, darkly funny, streetwise and effortlessly engaging, writing with acute feeling about ordinary lives shaped by forces larger than themselves: addiction, love, money.
