This poignant novel, beautifully translated by Simon Beattie, was, in Lampe’s words, "born into a regime where it could not breathe;" he hoped that one day it might rise again. It has no one main character, but evokes the sensations and impressions of a sultry September evening on the waterfront of Bremen, with its charm and tenderness, squalor and lust. It contains a stream of images with many characters: children, old and young people, men and women, townsfolk, performers, students and seamen. Things happen as they happen, horrible things, touching things. Its depiction of raw reality was unacceptable to the Nazis: the book was seized by them in December 1933 and withdrawn from sale.

About the Author:

An antiquarian bookseller specializing in European cultural (and cross-cultural) history Friedo Lampe (1899–1945) was born in Bremen. A disabled gay German writer, he survived the Third Reich only to be shot by the Red Army six days before the end of World War II. He wrote two novels, poetry and some short stories.

Review:

"At the Edge of the Night appeared in 1933. I read it at the time with great interest, as German prose writers of such quality were rare even then. . . . And what struck us at the time . . . as so beautiful and powerful has not paled, it has withstood; it proves itself with the best, and captivates and delights just as then." —Hermann Hesse
