Philip Kerr August 13, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
…interviewed in Socialist Worker some years back. Always liked Kerr’s Bernie Gunther series, crime thrillers set in the 1930s, 40s and 50s in Germany and elsewhere that shine a relentless light on the nature of the Nazi regime and the ripples that spread out from it. Interesting interview too, underscoring just how political his work is. Interestingly, and Kerr mentions this in the interview, Gunther is portrayed as a republican (and in the books IIRC he is a supporter of the SDP linked Iron Front). Anyone else read Kerr?
