Reviews

The book I have been waiting ever since the end of World War II for a German author to write.--Kay Boyle
Mordantly witty, despairing, impassioned, this is one of the most deeply imagined and thought-provoking novels from Germany in years.--Library Journal
If ever the Third Reich was pictured in microcosm, with its prejudices against people not rooted in the land, and its tiny spasms of nationalistic fervor that added up to an irrational howl in final sum, then Lenz has done it--has surpassed it.--Christopher Lehmann-Haupt - New York Times
"Remarkable, earnest, and important." --The Nation--The Nation
The German Lesson marks a double triumph: a book of rare depth and brilliance, to begin with, presented in an English version that succeeds against improbable odds in conveying the full power of the original.--Ernst Pawel - New York Times Book Review
