Editorial Reviews

Review

"George Grosz's autobiography is here translated in a version that restores its bite, verve and sardonic humor. . . . It's a brilliant autobiography, masterfully written, shot through with poetry, filled with sharp observations."--"Publishers Weekly

George Grosz was the quintessential artist of Berlin in the 20s, skewering everyone and everything around him, from the plutocrats driving the country to ruin to the beggars scraping for survival on the street. But sadly, the fire that made him such a strong artist had been dampened by the time he wrote this book. His new life in America was defined by the compromises he had to make to pay the bills and provide for his family, and you can feel his sense of defeat. The chapters on the German revolution of 1918 and his involvement with Dada in the 20s leaves you wishing you could have heard him before his anger had metastasized into bitterness.

A wonderful book. Not your typical autobiography at all. Grosz was one of the great artists of the 20th Century. He was a fervent anti-fascist despite not being Jewish. As well as describing his times under the Nazis in Germany and his struggles when he came to America, he tells his beginnings as an artist in childhood. I bought the book because Nora Hodges, the translator, was a High School teacher of mine. Her translation is a tour de force. I heartily recommend this book

A beautiful book: beautifully printed, filled with illustrations, an amazing story. Artists will love it---always start your caricature with the nose. Book readers will love this depiction of the boy growing up and learning his craft. Then the wild adventures of twenties Germany. His flight--his apartment ransacked by Nazis the day after he fled. And finally New York in the forties as exile art teacher and adventures with famous German exiles.
