    Going to the Dogs

    Berlin, 1929: There’s little hope, but plenty of amusement to be had if you know where to look. Jakob Fabian, 32, “at present an advertising copywriter,” isn’t one to mope; he and his friends prowl the city’s cabarets, exchanging barbs and looking for girls. “Graceful, vivid and distinguished … a little masterpiece of pathos and calamity.”—Michael Sadleir
