Wolf Among Wolves

(2010)
A novel by

 
This sweeping saga of love in dangerous times - the 1923 collapse of the German economy, when food and money shortages led to rioting in the streets and unemployed soldiers marauding through the countryside - is deemed by many to be Hans Fallada's greatest work. Yet its 1938 publication made his publisher so fearful of Nazi retribution that he told Fallada, 'If this book destroys us, then at least we'll be destroyed for something that's worth it.'

It appears here in its first unabridged translation into English, based on a contemporaneous translation by Philip Owens that has been revised and restored in full by Thorsten Carstensen and Nicholas Jacobs. Carstensen also provides an afterword discussing why the original version of the book was so heavily edited . and why Fallada's publisher thought a love story might get them killed.

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