Description

Tucholsky wrote this light, sexual summer romance in 1931, clearly with personal elements - even though the ménage à trois portrayed was merely the author's wishful fantasy, according to Tucholsky's lover.
Tucholsky's lighthearted love tale about a man and two ladies on vacation was a cultured, empathetic counter-project to the German-national bourgeoisie of the moment, implying that Germany might be like that as well.
Tucholsky was both a victim and a recorder of his time. A period in Germany between the two wars marked by militarism, authoritarianism, and ruthless exploitation of the lower classes.

Biography
Kurt Tucholsky was born on January 9, 1890, in Berlin, and studied law in Berlin and Geneva before receiving his doctorate at Jena in 1915. He had been a member of the 'Schaubühne' and then the 'Weltbühne' staff since 1913, and after Siegfried Jacobsohn's death, he was temporarily its editor. Kurt Tucholsky lived in Sweden from 1929 until his death on December 21, 1935, in Hindas. § Tucholsky was a pessimistic enlightener and one of the most important and sharp-tongued social critics and satirists of the Weimar Republic, a clear-sighted and often entertaining critic who pursued the goal of a democratic and humane society and early on warned of the dangers of anti-democratic violence. From the gloss to the reporting, and from the cabaret song to the little novel, he is regarded as a master of the small text form. Tucholsky no longer publishes a single sentence after 1932, owing to his dissatisfaction with the political circumstances; instead, he signs his letters "a stopped German" and "a stopped writer."
