Berlin in the 1920s. Franz Biberkopf has just been released from prison after serving four years for violence that resulted in the death of a girlfriend. He returns to his old neighborhood, Alexanderplatz, vowing to live a decent life. What he finds are unemployment lines, gangsters, prostitutes, petty thieves, and neophyte Nazis. In this sordid world there are new women: devoted Eva, vulnerable young Mieze and the dangerous, near psychotic Reinhold, who befriends him. As Franz struggles to survive, fate teases him with a little luck, a little pleasure, then cruelly turns on him.

Acerca del autor (2003)

Novelist, playwright, poet, essayist, Alfred Doblin was one of the most prolific writers of his time. He was also a practicing physician in Berlin's working-class district of Alexanderplatz. His novel of this name (1930) is considered his best work, and represents, in its montage technique, Doblin's experimental attitude toward prose writing. Doblin fled the Nazi regime in 1933 and lived for a while in the United States. Later, he became a French citizen and a convert to the Roman Catholic Church.
