Abstract:

"This volume brings together papers by scholars from Germany, the USA, France, England and Ireland given at the first International Feuchtwanger Conference, held in Los Angeles in 2003. Some of Lion Feuchtwanger's novels from his exile in the United States are analyzed here, as are the lives of Lion and Marta Feuchtwanger and their contacts in the German emigre world in California. In addition, two papers focus on aspects of Bertolt Brecht's and Alfred Doblin's lives as emigrants in California. This volume is of interest to students of exile studies, of German refuge in the USA and of modern German literature."--BOOK JACKET.
