Gilgi, One of Us

Author Irmgard Keun

£8.99

This title is not yet published, but can be pre-ordered

Description

A brilliant, bestselling feminist novel from Weimar Germany, from the author of ‘Child of All Nations’

Gilgi knows where she’s going in life: she’s ambitious, focused and determined, even when her boss tries it on with her, even when her parents reveal a terrible secret on her twenty-first birthday. Then she meets the charming but feckless Martin and, for the first time, Gilgi finds herself bewilderingly and dangerously derailed. Irmgard Keun’s electrifying debut was an instant sensation in Weimar Germany, with its frank, fearless exploration of sex, work and love.
