Hoppelpoppel - Where are you?
Oldham, England: Incline Press, 2015. Paperback. Limited Edition of under 250 copies. Out of Print. Hans Fallada (1893-1947) was a famous German writer in the first half of the 20th century. His most significant work was the 1947 novel Every Man Dies Alone, written by Fallada in a feverish heat in only twenty-four days, dying just weeks before its publication. This Anti-fascist novel was based on a true story of a couple whose grief for their murdered son led them to launch a clandestine resistance campaign in Nazi Germany. In her new introduction for this translation, Jenny Wilson says that Fallada turned to writing for children in the 1930s when his novels came under scrutiny by Nazi authorities. Among his works for children was this charming and poignant story of young Tom and his beloved stuffed dog, Hoppelpoppel.
