A widow left sitting on her husband’s debts moves from the provinces to Berlin and tries to get through life there with her three children. Following a botched suicide attempt, she directs her newly awakened ambition at her oldest son’s career. And the son does manage to climb the ranks of society. But then the Great Depression suddenly threatens everything…
Pardon wird nicht gegeben is the first novel Döblin wrote in exile after escaping from Germany. Drafted in Paris in 1934 and published in Amsterdam a year later, the work has strong autobiographical elements. Beyond the individual stories, Döblin describes the fate of an entire epoch in a wealth of epic detail.
