About the Author

Theodor Fontane (1819-98) was a German novelist and potitical reporter. Along with EFFI BRIEST, Fontane is remembered for FRAU JENNY TREIBEL (1892), an ironic criticism of middle-class hypocrisy and small-mindedness. Hugh Rorrison has published extensively on modern German theatre and teaches German film at the University of Leeds. Helen Chambers organised the first conference on English translations of Fontane in 1992 and teaches German at the University of St Andrews.

Reviews

It's very moving, and it's incredibly funny ... I wasn't prepared for the wit. Stupendous on so many levels -- Matt Wolff
A stunningly moving, beautiful, witty and urbane novel: I was blown away by it. A wonderful translation * Kate Saunders *
