Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The question How German Is It underlies the conduct and actions of the characters in Walter Abish's novel, an icy panorama of contemporary Germany, in which the tradition of order and obedience, the patrimony of the saber and the castle on the Rhine, give way to the present, indiscriminate fascination with all things American.


Review:

"Like snow, this novel accumulates delicately, lulling the mind with an inaudible dream....Abish's masterly novel...is his finest book to date."

Paul West, Washington Post Book World, 11/09/1980

Review:

"Mr. Abish seems to be saying that it is the menace lurking beneath the surface that appeals to the new Germans as a way of experiencing, if only deviously, the unassimilated terror of their past....[It] can be read as a quasi-quest novel or as a satire on the new Germany..."

Betty Falkenberg, New York Times Book Review, 01/04/1981
