Product Description:

Going to the Dogs: The Story of a Moralist is set in Berlin after the Wall Street crash of 1929 and before the Nazi takeover years of relentlessly rising unemployment when major banks and companies were in collapse. The moralist in question is Jakob Fabian 'aged thirty-two profession variable at present advertising copywriter 17 Schaperstrasse weak heart brown hair' a young man with an excellent education but at least in the current economy no prospects-permanently condemned so far as anyone can see to a low-paid job without security in the short or the long run. What's to be done? Fabian and friends make the best of it-they go to work every day even though they may be laid off at any time and in the evenings they head out to the cabarets and try to make it with girls on the make-and all in all everyone makes as the pages fly by a lot of sharp-sighted and sharp-witted observations about politics life and love or what may be. Not that it makes a difference. Workers keep losing work to new technologies while businessmen keep busy making money and everyone who can goes out to dance clubs and sex clubs or engages in marathon bicycle events since so long as there's hope of running into the right person or (even) doing the right thing well-why stop?
