About the Author

PETER HOEYNG is Professor of German at Emory University. CHAUNCEY J. MELLOR is Professor Emeritus of German at the University of Tennesee.


[A]n important historical document that tried to show its German-speaking readers the little-known injustices of the highly segregated American society under Jim Crow. [It] is also important in its attempt to depict European society as morally superior, which corresponds with the portrayal of Europe in novels of the Harlem Renaissance era. . . . Thanks to Peter Hoeyng's and Chauncey J. Mellor's careful translation, the novel is now available to English-speaking readers, who will also appreciate the thoughtful introduction and afterword that provide much-needed context. -- Gregor Thuswaldner * DELOS *
[M]erits the attention of several audiences and is a valuable resource for those interested in the Harlem Renaissance. Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. * CHOICE *
[O]ffers marvelous opportunities in today's 'German Literature in Translation' courses, especially for those who wish to explore vast and complex dialogues between Austria and the world at large, while also coming close to home for many American readers, who will find the topics raised by the novel very relevant to the events surrounding them here and now. * JOURNAL OF AUSTRIAN STUDIES *
