Sanna and her ravishing good friend Gerti could particularly converse of affection than politics, yet in Thirties Frankfurt, politics can't be escaped--even within the lady's rest room. Crossing city one night to satisfy up with Gerti's Jewish lover, a blockade cuts off the ladies' path--it is the Fürher in a motorcade procession, and the group is going mad striving to capture a glimpse of Hitler's raised "empty hand." Then the parade is over, and within the lengthy hours after nighttime Sanna and Gerti will face betrayal, demise, and the heartbreaking truth of being younger in an period without innocence or romance.

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