by Kurt TucholskyBerlin Berlin, by Kurt Tucholsky, is a satirical selection from the man with the acid pen and the perfect pitch for hypocrisy, who was as much the voice of 1920s Berlin as Georg Grosz was its face. The book collects Kurt Tucholsky’s news stories and poems about his home town Berlin, never published in America—or in English—before.
This short story, "The Times Are Screaming for Satire," is part of this book. It is an extremely funny and probably only slightly exaggerated take on the Berlin Cabaret and the infighting between authors, theatre owners, and actresses behind the scenes, and the befuddled audience watching this. This Kindle Short also contains Berlin! Berlin!, the ultimate description of the ever-moving, fast-talking, ever-complaining Berliner.
Berlin! Berlin! has a foreword by New York author Anne Nelson and an introduction by Ian King, the chair of the Kurt-Tucholsky-Society. There is a short version of both in this excerpt.
