More About Erich Maria Remarque

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Erich Maria Remarque, who was born in Germany, was drafted into the German army during World War I. Through the hazardous years following the war he worked at many occupations: schoolteacher, small-town drama critic, race-car driver, editor of a sports magazine. His first novel, "All Quiet on the Western Front, " was published in Germany in 1928. A brilliant success, selling more than a million copies, it was the first of many literary triumphs. When the Nazis came to power, Remarque left Germany for Switzerland. He rejected all attempts to persuade him to return, and as a result he lost his German citizenship, his books were burned, and his films banned. He went to the United States in 1938 and became a citizen in 1947. He later lived in Switzerland with his second wife, the actress Paulette Goddard. He died in September 1970.

Erich Maria Remarque was born in 1898 and died in 1970.

Reviews - What do customers think about Flotsam?

This is a book that deserves more than 5 stars  Nov 14, 2000
A detail and powerful portrait of all people who lived under the oppressive regime of Nazi Germany. The reader of the book will have a deep appreciation for the feelings of hopelessness of the oppressed under an evil and powerful government.
A Time to Live and a Time to Survive  Jun 21, 2000
I'm more used to the images and tales of concentration camp victims and exterminations. This story of lost souls forced to drift around the European continent (mostly on foot) in pre-World War II -- people denied passports or any other identification papers -- was a revelation to me.

Anyone interested in what the period between the two World Wars meant to the common German citizen should seriously consider reading this fine novel. I have not found anyone better to describe man's inhumanity to man than Erich Maria Remarque.

Who is to decide who is human detritus? Flotsam, indeed!

Good , not great  May 27, 2000
Flotsam is the third Remarque book I have read and unfortunately it lacks the power and emotion of 'All Quiet On The Western Front' and 'A Time To Love And A Time To Die' which I consider two of the best novels I've read. The book is set in Europe preceding World War 2. It concerns Kern, a jew and Stiener, a political disidant, both made stateless refugees by nazi Germany. Both are tossed from country to country like hot potatoes. The rest of Europe, disgustingly unconcerned for them and thousands of others in their plite. While an interesting subject and quite a good read, I never felt I was close to the characters and it tended to meander a little. Maybe I expected too much.
