Book Description: 

<b>A <i>New York Times Book Review </i>Notable Book of the Year<br><br></b>&ldquo;To read <i>Every Man Dies Alone</i>, Fallada&rsquo;s testament to the darkest years of the 20th century, is to be accompanied by a wise, somber ghost who grips your shoulder and whispers in your ear: 'This is how it was. This is what happened.'&rdquo;<b> <br>&mdash;<i>The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br><b> <br> </b>&ldquo;I very much enjoyed the rediscovery of Hans Fallada ...&#160; a wonderful novel. Compelling.&rdquo; <b><br>&mdash;Ian McEwan</b><p>This never-before-translated masterpiece&mdash;by a heroic best-selling writer who saw his life crumble when he wouldn&rsquo;t join the Nazi Party&mdash;is based on a true story.</p><p>It presents a richly detailed portrait of life in Berlin under the Nazis and tells the sweeping saga of one working-class couple who decides to take a stand when their only son is killed at the front. With nothing but their grief and each other against the awesome power of the Reich, they launch a simple, clandestine resistance campaign that soon has an enraged Gestapo on their trail, and a world of terrified neighbors and cynical snitches ready to turn them in.</p><p>In the end, it&rsquo;s more than an edge-of-your-seat thriller, more than a moving romance, even more than literature of the highest order&mdash;it&rsquo;s a deeply stirring story of two people standing up for what&rsquo;s right, and for each other.<br><br>***<br><br>This is a&#160;<b>Hybrid Book</b>.<br><br>Melville House&#160;HybridBooks&#160;combine print and digital media into an enhanced reading experience by including with each title additional curated material called&#160;<b>Illuminations</b>&#160;&mdash; maps, photographs, illustrations, and further writing about the author and the book.
