About the Author

ERICH KASTNER (1899-1974) was born in Dresden. His first book of poems was published in 1928, as was the children's book Emil and the Detectives, which quickly achieved worldwide fame. Going to the Dogs appeared in 1931 and was followed by many other works for adults and children, including Lottie and Lisa, the basis for the popular Disney film The Parent Trap. RODNEY LIVINGSTONE is a professor emeritus in German Studies at the University of Southampton. In 2009 he was awarded the Ungar German Translation Prize of the American Translators' Association for his translation of Detlev Claussen's Theodor W. Adorno: One Last Genius. CYRUS BROOKS was a writer of detective stories and a translator of other books by Kastner as well as by Alfred Neumann, Leonhard Frank, and others.

Reviews

'Kastner's stylishly wanton satire, the literary equivalent of an Otto Dix painting, articulates the frenetic hope and despair with whimsical panache.' Irish Times 'Kastner balances comedy, the music hall and the grim facts of one man's life in a wonderful novel that not only recalls 1920s Berlin, bringing Dix and Grosz to life, but also shines a spotlight on today." Irish Times
