Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). The very pensive and subtly constructed book delivers thought provoking views on freedom, escape, resistance from multiple perspectives and seems like an autobiographical act of katharsis for the universal guilty conscience of those who failed to stop the NSDAP before it was too late, such as Andersch himself.
Alfred Andersch: Sansibar oder Der letzte Grund (Flight to Afar). I am not too keen on either of the titles. The English is pretty meaningless, except that the main characters are trying to flee Nazi Germany but not too far away, only over the water to Sweden. Andersch tells us a first-class story of five people with their own reasons for doing what they are doing and cleverly, the Nazis remain as The Others, very remote, with only the brief appearance of a motor patrol boat. The fear of them for all, of course, is very strong.
A quietly holding book- for a marginal market at best. Categories of Interest: Select All. Biography & Memoir.
