The story of the most patriotic American in the Third Reich. Mother Night is a sharp, funny book that's humor is both satiric and farcical.

"Mother Night" tells the story of an American playwright who is enlisted to be a spy within World War II Germany. The playwright becomes part of the upper crust of Nazi society. Working as a talk-radio personality, he encodes top secret information in his pro-Nazi broadcasts. In so doing, he helps to bring about the eventual victory of the Allies.

The movie adaption is worth checking out too.
