9780141392158: No Way Back (Penguin Classics)

A classic novel about marriage and betrayal from the great German realist

Gregarious and adventurous, Count Helmuth Holk is delighted to be called away from his solemn and pious wife to the distant court of a Danish princess. Swept up in the romance of his new surroundings, he does not realize that everyone there is not what they seem—a fact that causes him to make a decision that has fatal consequences. A tragicomic novel of a failing marriage and modern sexual politics, No Way Back is full of the irony, elegance, and masterly dialogue for which Theodor Fontane is acclaimed.

About the Author:

Theodor Fontane (1819–1898), one of Germany’s greatest writers, published sixteen novels and also worked as a pharmacist, soldier, press agent, journalist, and war correspondent.

Hugh Rorrison and Helen Chambers have published extensively on German literature and together translated Fontane’s Effi Briest for Penguin Classics.

Review:

No Way Back is a marvellous novel, marvellously translated -- Martin Swales * Translation and Literature * Theodor Fontane's standing in Germany is comparable to Jane Austen's in the English-speaking world...his best work is an elegant and engaging blend of irony, penetration and compassion -- Helen Chambers Helen Chambers and Hugh Rorrison have improved on the previous English version...natural, idiomatic -- Ritchie Robertson * Times Literary Supplement * No Way Back ... surely ranks among the most imaginatively challenging and intellectually satisfying attainments in the dominant nineteenth-century form -- Paul Binding * The Spectator *
