Sanna and her ravishing buddy Gerti might quite converse of affection than politics, yet in Thirties Frankfurt, politics can't be escaped--even within the lady's toilet. Crossing city one night to fulfill up with Gerti's Jewish lover, a blockade cuts off the women' path--it is the Fürher in a motorcade procession, and the group is going mad striving to trap a glimpse of Hitler's raised "empty hand." Then the parade is over, and within the lengthy hours after dead night 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 just recently fled Nazi Germany together with her lover Joseph Roth while she wrote this slender, beautiful, and devastating e-book. It captures the insufferable stress, contradictions, and hysteria of pre-war Germany like no different novel. but at the same time it exposes human folly, the booklet exudes a hopeful humanism. it's jam-packed with humor and light-weight, while it describes the 1st moments of a nightmare. After middle of the night is a masterpiece that merits to be learn and remembered anew.
