About the Author: Gregor von Rezzori

Gregor von Rezzori was born in 1914 in Chernivtsi in the Bukovina, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and now part of Ukraine. In an extraordinarily peripatetic life von Rezzori was succesively an Austro-Hungarian, Romanian and Soviet citizen and then, following a period of being stateless, an Austrian citizen.

The great theme of his work was the multi-ethnic, multi-lingual world in which he grew up and which the wars and ideologies of the twentieth century destroyed. His major works include The Death of My Brother Abel, Memoirs of an Anti-Semite and his autobiographical masterpiece The Snows of Yesteryear.

He died in his home in Italy in 1998.

Far from the Stalingrad Front, Charley's bar is a decadent world filled with eccentric souls who consider themselves heirs to the broken spirit of the times, snobs completely disinterested in the events that led to World War II. The young Traugott von Yassilkovski tries to establish himself within Nazi Berlin's high society, and so he learns how to dress, how to speak, with whom to socialize, and he even marries a blond Aryan woman, the heiress to an ammunitions fortune. This ironic satire about social climbing is an exciting psychological portrayal of a prewar Berlin already completely permeated by Nazism.
Lejos del frente de Stalingrado, el bar de Charley reúne un decadente mundo repleto de seres estrafalarios que se consideran herederos del maltrecho espíritu de la época, esnobs despreocupados con los acontecimientos que desencadenan la Segunda Guerra Mundial. El joven Traugott von Yassilkovski intenta establecerse dentro de esta alta sociedad en el Berlín nazi, y para ello aprende cómo vestirse, cómo hablar, con quién socializar y hasta se casa con una mujer rubia y aria, heredera de una fortuna de municiones. Esta sátira irónica sobre el ascenso social es un trepidante retrato psicológico de un Berlín completamente permeado por el nazismo en los años anteriores a la guerra.
