Every man dies alone /
|Item Description:||First Melville House paperback printed: February 2010.|
First published in German as Jeder stirbt für sich allein. Berlin : Aufbau, 1947.
"Based on a true story, this sweeping saga tells the tale of a working class couple in Berlin who decide to take a stand against the Nazis. More than an edge-of-your-seat thriller, more than a moving romance, even more than literature of the highest order, it's a deeply moving story of two people who stand up for what's right, and for each other. Hans Fallada wrote Every Man Dies Alone in a feverish twenty-four days, soon after the end of World War II and his release from a Nazi insane asylum. He did not live to see his its publication."--p. 4 of cover.
"This volume includes: An afterword telling the shocking story of Hans Fallada's life ; Excerpts from the original Gestapo files the story is based upon ; A readers' guide for book clubs."--p. 4 of cover.
