Highly underrated author, here is his first novel. An American soldier rides his motorcycle through the collapsing civilizations of Germany after WW2. Very dream like and introspective at times. I liked it.
A surrealistic novel of Germany after the Second World War. In the bombed-out ruins of the little village of Spitzen-on-the-Dein, a faded nightclub singer plots with a ruined politician to murder the single American G.I. who rules over the region from his motorcycle. There are flashbacks to 1914, and many of the characters appear in both periods.
