9781445785684: Sown With Corn

Sown with Corn is the story of an English student studying in Germany at the university in Bonn during the rise of the Nazis. The author, Frank Binder, was himself a lecturer in English literature at the university during that same period, and in his later years in Germany may have been a British spy. The book is therefore almost certainly at least semi-autobiographical and the story rings vividly true. It has an intense realism born of Binder's first-hand knowledge. The book tracks, through its characters, the spread of Nazi influence, not only among the people of Bonn and the intellectual elite of the university, but also in a rural community. The story is thus a microcosm of what happened in Germany generally. But though the story is sometimes grim, the courage of the few who refused to give in is inspiring. Its narrative makes it a compulsive page-turner, and the author's writing brings scenes vividly to life.
