Published in 1932, set in Berlin of 1930-31, this is a bleak look at the common man living through the Depression. The Nazis are on the rise, in the background, but they do not play a prominent role. The story centers around a young couple who are trying to make ends meet. While the struggle is mighty, they are idealistic enough to find hope in their love for each other and their infant son. Refreshing in its realism.
