Harold L. Poor’s biography of the iconic German Jewish author, journalist, satirist, playwright, and poet is the most important and thorough work on Kurt Tucholsky in the English-speaking world; a labor of love by the Rutgers history professor that is still unmatched. For this book, Poor has not only spent years of research in American Universities, he also visited Tucholsky’s widow Mary Gerold in her home in Germany, his family in tow, and unearthed material, letters, and pictures previously unknown. This book is an entertaining and well-written gem that has finally been rediscovered.

“The book does offer an introduction to a very important period

and a witty, cosmopolitan, quite tragic man.”

Kirkus Reviews

“This biography, the first substantial treatment of its subject in English, does an excellent job of analyzing Tucholsky’s Hassliebe for Germany.”

Robert E. Neil, The American Historical Review

“Poor has placed the brilliant satirist in the context of the history of his country. ... a meticulously researched, copiously annotated study.”

Harry Zohn, The Germanic Review

</p>

<p>

“An (...)  academic exercise of the sort Tucholsky himself prophetically anticipated in his Plea Against Immortality.”

Ernst Pawel, Commentary Magazine

</p>

“Poor has provided a new focus of the Weimar Republic and its fate.“

Carl E. Schorske, The New York Review of Books

Richard Hanser, The German-American Review
