By Heinrich Mann
Dramatised in two parts by Patricia Hannah.
First published in 1900 and originally titled 'In the Land of Cockaigne', Mann's novel is about the rise and fall of Andrew Zumsee, an innocent but self-confident young poet from the provinces, as he attempts to make a name for himself in Berlin society.
The older brother of Thomas Mann, Heinrich Mann is probably best-remembered today as the author of the book which inspired the film, 'The Blue Angel'."Berlins's the place for someone like me - where everybody is somebody or knows somebody who's somebody.
I need only sit here, make myself agreeable, and by the end of the summer everybody in the Café Hurrah will be shouting 'Hurrah!' for me..."adelheid türkheimer....Joanna Topeadelheid turkheimer....Joanna Topeandrew zumsee....John Kieltyasta türkheimer....lucy patersonasta turkheimer....lucy patersondiederich klempner....gregor powriedoctor bedeiner....ralph riachfriederich kopf....Simon Donaldsonheinrich mann....james brycekarl kaflisch....simon taitlizzi laffé....vivienne dixonlouis türkheimer....john sheddenlouis turkheime....john sheddendirected by.... - david jackson young
