Tales from the Underworld

Selected Shorter Fiction, by Hans Fallada

HF_Tales underworld.jpg

416 pages of searingly honest short stories from Hans Fallada, in new translation by Michael Hofmann

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.

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, and money.
