In this savage and witty parable written in exile in 1941, Brecht recasts the rise of Hitler as a small-time Chicago gangsters takeover of the citys greengrocery trade. This prizewinning translation by Ralph Manheim skilfully captures the wide range of parody and pastiche in the original - from Richard III to Al Capone, from Mark Antony to Faust - without diminishing the horror of the real-life Nazi prototypes.
