Book DescriptionIn this picaresque and highly entertaining novel, Leutenlieb, a.k.a. Baron Munchausen (great-great-great grandson of his celebrated ancestor), takes us on a roller-coaster ride through the history of the Twentieth Century, introducing us along the way to a galaxy of iconic figures – from Hitler to Hemingway, from Al Capone to Greta Garbo – while describing how, with breath-taking imagination, brilliant ingenuity and technological expertise of staggering proportions (not to mention legendary modesty!) he succeeds in solving all the problems with which he is faced.
The darker side is there too – two world wars, Nazi extermination camps and Soviet labor camps – but through it all our protagonist maintains his optimism, his integrity, his belief in the power of the indomitable human spirit, and his sense of humor. The full tragicomedy of life is there.
Master storyteller and nominee for the Nobel Prize in Literature, Shlomo Kalo breathes new life into a classic tale, crafting a rich and hilarious world that will have readers tight in its grip from the first time they open the book to the moment when they turn the last page of the memorable closing chapter.
