Book: Every Man Dies Alone

Decades after it was written, "Every Man Dies Alone" has been translated into English and reviewed here.

Based on a true story, Hans Fallada, a pseudonym, provides the reader with yet another side to resistance in Nazi Germany with a mere postcard.

The protagonists, like their real life characters, took on Adolf Hitler with dozens of inflammatory postcards. The two knew the risks. They were discovered and unmasked, and ultimately put to death, but as expounded in the review, "even little is more than nothing." [paraphrased.]

What I don't see is why it took so long to translate the novel.
