Previously unpublished stories by the bestselling author of Alone in Berlin. In September 1925, Hans Fallada handed himself in to the police.

Now court documents from Fallada’s imprisonment have recently been rediscovered, and with them a never-before seen story collection. Peopled by complex characters at odds with society, Fallada’s stories tackle hitherto taboo topics such as rape and abortion, and explore the lives of women and male outsiders. These stories reveal to a new generation of readers Fallada’s immense gifts and his intense inner battles.
