Overview

What happens after you die? Where will you be? What will you do? Do you have a harp? Will you meet Him? Were you happy with your life? And will you get a second chance to return to earth? In this charming book, Kurt Tucholsky discovers the afterlife and what angels are talking about when they are sitting on the clouds and dangle their legs.

Author Biography

The famed humorist, poet, storyteller, satirist, and journalist Kurt Tucholsky, born 1890 in Berlin to German Jewish parents, sketched these light-hearted musings about the afterlife between 1925 and 1928 for Die Weltbühne (The World Stage). Die Weltbühne was the magazine he was mainly working for at that time, it was the voice of the political Left in Weimar Germany. Tucholsky wrote this collection under the pen name Kaspar Hauser, one of his four pseudonyms. The stories have appeared in Germany as a book only well after World War II. They were never been translated and published in the United States until now.William Grimes was an editor and reporter at the New York Times for more than twenty-five years. He covered the arts, served as restaurant critic, and, most recently, wrote obituaries.He is the author of Straight Up or On the Rocks: The Story of the American Cocktail and Appetite City: A Culinary History of New York.
