Hans Fallada

Fallada, Hans (häns fäˈlädä) [key], pseud. of Rudolf Ditzen rōˈdôlf dĭtˈsən, 1893–1947, German novelist. Little Man, What Now? (1932, tr. 1933), his story of a young couple in Germany after World War I, was an immediate international success. It was followed by The World Outside (1934, tr. 1934), Once We Had a Child (1934, tr. 1935), and Jeder stirbt für sich allein [each man dies his own death] (1947). Fallada's work belongs to new objectivity of the 20th-century that expressed its intellectual detachment from man's fate in words and a style intended to suppress emotional connotations.
