Short Stories by Hans Arnold


Six cameos of domestic life in North Germany in the mid-19th century, told with a light and sympathetic touch and with Arnold’s legendary talent for farce.




Translated from the German

Hans Arnold (Babette von Buelow) has a rare talent for making effective use of coincidence to create farce in the best tradition. In You Have to Be Lucky! the hero meets the love of his life minutes after posting a letter proposing a ‘marriage of convenience’ to a neighbour’s daughter.
