In 1937, German writer Irmgard Keun had only in the near past fled Nazi Germany together with her lover Joseph Roth whilst she wrote this slender, beautiful, and devastating publication. It captures the insufferable pressure, contradictions, and hysteria of pre-war Germany like no different novel. but at the same time it exposes human folly, the booklet exudes a hopeful humanism. it truly is filled with humor and lightweight, at the same time it describes the 1st moments of a nightmare. After dead night is a masterpiece that merits to be learn and remembered anew.
