Publisher Description

Berlin Alexanderplatz

Translation by Anne Thompson of Alfred Döblin's masterpiece set in 1920's Berlin towards the end of the jazz and music-hall era of the Roaring 20's.

Franz Biberkopf is released after four years in prison for killing his girl-friend in a fit of rage. He makes a vow that he will go straight and lead a decent life, but his corrupt environment makes it impossible and despite all his efforts he is plunged step by steps into the louche world of gangsters, prostitutes and pimps.

Anne Thompson's translation captures the atmosphere of cosmopolitan Berlin towards the end of the Weimar Republic, and of the life of people in the streets of the working-class area of Berlin around the Alexanderplatz square.
