The cherries of freedom: a reportNutzerbericht - Book Verdict
Best known for his novel Sansibar (an international best seller translated into English as Flight to Afar), German author Andersch (1914-80) was a young man when he was caught in the terrible whirlwind of Hitler's rise to power. Escape seemed like the best option, but since the author wasn't able to break out of his body, he initially exited into philosophy, literature, and art. Using fear, dread, reason, passion, and courage-the forces in which he believed-he consciously chose a life other than the one forced upon him, deserting the army and joining the Communist Party even as World War II was raging. Andersch's rambling coming-of-age story is grim, acutely self-aware, and written entirely in the first person with the barest taste of dialog. Not all American readers will be familiar with the people and political events referenced here, and how all this adds up to such a compelling book is a mystery-but it does. This book will appeal especially to those interested in the birth of a writer in Germany before and during World War II. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries.-Neal Wyatt, Chesterfield Cty. P.L., VA ...
