1913 – The year before the storm – new, surprising and delightful stories

In his brilliant bestseller 1913, Florian Illies masterfully unfolds the panorama of an unforgettable year. 1913 is the year our present day begins, a key moment in history. A magnificent book, a great best- seller. But there is so much more to say, further surprising, delight- ful and remarkable moments: Hermann and Mia Hesse want to give it another go, Egon Schiele can’t get enough of his muse Wally, after several rejections, Proust is desperately searching for a new pub- lisher, Tilla Durieux is driving all men crazy and the high-wire artist and rogue Otto Witte from Berlin-Pankow is crowned King of Alba- nia. The elegant stylist Florian Illies was unable to relinquish the year 1913 and so he has gathered together additional stories and events from a splendid year in which our present day began in this wonderful new volume.
