Product Description


“A literary sensation, as explosive today as in 1932.”—Bayerisches Fernsehen

“This book, that pulls the whole of human comedy through the needle’s eye of an employee’s everyday life, is not only one of the great literary works of the twentieth century and a major contribution to the ‘psychology of the city’ comparable to Döblin’s Berlin Alexanderplatz, it is also a project of disillusionment that is eerily relevant today.”—Neue Züricher Zeitung

“In its analytical power and its illuminating language, this book surpasses everything written in the Weimar Republic about the world of the employee.”—Wilfried F. Schoeller, Süddeutsche Zeitung
