Anton in America: A Novel from German-American Life has been described as the best German-language book published in the United States. Written by Reinhold Solger, a gifted German revolutionary intellectual who emigrated to America, this witty novel sheds light on topics of perennial importance: a hero's development through encounters with different social worlds, immigrant identity formation in a new land, and the country and the city. Solger took German ideas and values and adapted them to an American context, thus producing a literary work that could comment upon German, American, and German-American life, making Anton in America an important source for understanding the rich linguistic and cultural history of the United States. This lively translation makes a great book available to English-speaking readers for the first time.
