Summary
Life Goes On paints a dark portrait of Germany between the world wars. It tells the story of Max Seldersen - a Jewish store owner modeled on the author's father, a textile merchant and decorated World War I veteran - along with his wife, Else, and son, Albrecht, and the troubles they encounter as the German economy collapses and politics turn rancid. Banned by the Nazis in 1934, it has finally been reissued and translated.
