I haven't read any of his stories but this sounds very good. I like Fallada's Little Man, What Now? I read the German original quite a long time ago but it stayed with me, even details. I'd ike to read The Drinker as well.

I picked this one up today. I think Hofmann translated most of the minis I've bought actually. Nice to see the positive review. Like you I didn't really want to kick off with something at the 500 page plus mark. But then that's the whole concept of the minis isn't it? Making it easy to try someone out.

Nice to read your thoughts on this, Lizzy. I can vouch for the quality of both Alone in Berlin and Little Man, What Now? (see my blog), though I haven't read The Drinker, which also comes highly recommended, nor Wolf Among Wolves, which in fact I never even bought given the sheer bulk of it. Fallada's prose is readable and fluent but always eye-opening. And of course Michael Hofmann's involvement is a recommendation in itself. I've picked up a few of the Minis but must add this one to the pile.
