Synopsis: Berlin! Berlin! is a satirical selection from the man with the "acid pen and the perfect pitch for hypocrisy,” as New York author and Tucholsky-expert Peter Wortsman writes. This book os a complete collection of Tucholsky’s news stories, features, satirical pieces, and poems about his hometown Berlin. It depicts Weimar Berlin, its cabarets, its policies, its follies, its ticks, and its celebrities, such as Pola Negri, Claire Waldoff, Bertold Brecht, Max Reinhardt, or Heinrich Zille. The book contains some of Tucholsky’s most famous pieces, among them Berlin! Berlin!, a feature of the stereotypical Berliner on the phone, on vacation or doing “bizness”, more than one satirical biography of the author himself, and some of his most famed stories such as where the holes in the cheese come from, or about the lion who escaped the Berlin zoo. Herr Wendriner, the chatty Berlin businessman makes an appearance, as well as Lottchen, the flapper, modelled after one of Tucholsky’s real-life gilrfriends. Also Tucholsky’s long-term friends Karlchen and Jakopp are part of this book,

The foreword was written by Anne Nelson, the author of “The Red Orchestra: The Story of the Berlin Underground and the Circle of Friends Who Resisted Hitler”. Ian King, the distinguished chair of the Kurt-Tucholsky-Society and a former professor of German in London and Sheffield, who wrote his Ph. D. on Tucholsky and is the co-editor of Volume 3 of Tucholsky’s Complete Works provided a biographical introduction. “His writings still have lessons for us today,” King writes, “that a man who might have preferred to write idylls, humorous pieces and unpolitical verse instead devoted his life to fighting against injustice and arguing passionately against the addiction to military uniforms which afflicted too many of his compatriots.”

Peter Schneider, the author of the Berlin novel "Walljumper" writes about this book: “Kurt Tucholsky was one of the most brilliant German-Jewish writers and satirists of his time. He had to leave his beloved Berlin because of his biting, witty stories against militarism and Nazi Fascism. Today’s Berliners adore him as one of the greatest sons of this city. The world has yet to discover his genius.” This collection of Tucholsky’s stories, with many pictures of the old and the new Berlin has never been published in America—or in English—before. This book will hopefully help to rediscover the famed writer in the United States.

From the Author: Why Kurt Tucholsky? And why now?
Ask most Americans for their impression of Berlin in the 1920s, and they'll come up with images from "Cabaret." Liza Minelli's "divine decadence" suggested a blend of naughty Moulin Rouge and tawdry Las Vegas. Today this seems like a distant past. But Tucholsky, who occupied the center stage in the tumultuous political and cultural world of 1920s Berlin, still emerges as an astonishingly contemporary figure. As an angry truth-teller, he pierced the hypocrisy and corruption around him with acute honesty. Imagine a writer with the acid voice of Christopher Hitchens and the satirical whimsy of Jon Stewart, combined with the iconoclasm of Bill Maher. That's Tucholsky in a nutshell.

From the foreword by Anne Nelson

Book Description Berlinica Publishing LLC, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Berlin! Berlin! is a satirical selection from the man with the acid pen and the perfect pitch for hypocrisy, who was as much the voice of 1920s Berlin as Georg Grosz was its face. It shines a light on the Weimar Republic and the post-World War I struggle, which fore-shadowed the Third Reich. Kurt Tucholsky was a brilliant satirist, poet, storyteller, lyricist, pacifist, and Democrat; a fighter, lady s man, reporter, and early warner against the Nazis who hated and loathed him and drove him out of his country. He was a small, fat Berliner, who wanted to stop a catastrophe with his typewriter, wrote his contemporary, Erich Kastner. When he began to write, he had five voices-in the end, he had none. He was one of the most famous journalists in Weimar Germany, surrounded by women, but he died alone in Sweden, an enemy of the state, among the first authors whose books were burned and banned by the Nazis in 1933. But he is not forgotten. This book collects Tucholsky s news stories, features, satirical pieces, and poems about his home town Berlin, never published in America before.
