Flotsam by Erich Maria Remarque is the first of a trilogy.

Flotsam by Erich Maria Remarque is the first of a trilogy. Flotsam is the third Remarque book I have read and unfortunately it lacks the power and emotion of 'All Quiet On The Western Front' and 'A Time To Love And A Time To Die' which I consider two of the best novels I've read. The book is set in Europe preceding World War 2. It concerns Kern, a jew and Stiener, a political disidant, both made stateless refugees by nazi Germany.

Erich Maria Remarque, Denver Lindley. Among the thousands of displaced persons traveling the unpaved roads of Europe, there are Steiner and Kern. Both have irritated officials for outstaying their cold two-week welcome in Czechoslovakia. And so they must leave. Not that either has any place to go. Not in 1939.

From the beloved author of All Quiet on the Western Front, Flotsam is a terrifying portrait of Europe as the Nazi shadow falls over the continent.   Political dissidents, Jews, medical students, petty criminals: Among the thousands of displaced persons traveling the unpaved roads of Europe, there are Steiner and Kern. Both have irritated officials for outstaying their two-week sojourn in Czechoslovakia. And so they must leave. Not that either has any place to go. Not in 1939. But when a man is led by a guard to the border of one country, he must try another. Until he is escorted from that one too.   Living hand-to-mouth, selling shoelaces and safety pins for a few pennies, Steiner and Kern find that, remarkably, there are still pleasures to be had. Paris, for one; love, for another. For amid the heartless cruelty and cold-blooded laws of the Nazi state, there is still humanity and kindness. And there is incomparable joy in falling in love, surviving, and telling your story so it is never forgotten.   “The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review
  • For all of us too young to know the actual frightening holocaust of mid-20th century Europe, here it is, portrayed in the most graphic and yet touching and life affirming terms.

  • WW1 Aftermath leading to Nazis and WW2

  • A wonderful book from wonderful author

  • "Flotsom" may have had relevance when it was written, but without any timeliness to sustain it the novel shows Eric Maria Remarque at his worst. The book is mercilessly padded and amounts to little more than the expetriences of two men moving back and forth across the border. The plight of the stateless as Europe was about to erupt deserves far better.

  • Flotsam by Erich Maria Remarque is the first of a trilogy. It tells the story of several refugees from Germany prior to World War II who are shunted back and forth across borders without any regard for their dignity, and without those countries taking any serious interest in finding a solution for this practice. The refugees struggle to maintain their dignity and start again in new countries that won't accept them or give them permission to remain or work there. The futility of their efforts, their varying abilities to adjust to this new world of rumor and chance, and the kindnesses and evil they experience along the way from their fellow human beings tell an extraordinary tale. Sadly, it does not appear that the world has changed, since these conditions continue to this day.

  • Flotsam is the first of Remarque's refugee works (followed by Arch of Triumph and Shadows in Paradise). The themes he explored in The Three Comrades are here--the ill heroine, the WWI war veteran, etc. However, here the emphasis is on the absurdities that the nationless must face to survive. The work is interesting from a literary standpoint in that Remarque's writing is maturing, though he does seem to return to the same characters over and over--here, the Steiner figure is similar to Ravic in the Arch of Triumph, who, is similar to the main characters of Heaven Has No Favorites, Night in Lisbon, Shadows In Paradise and The Black Obelisk. Be that as it may, it is always a pleasure to read Remarque's world-weary wisdom of the old soldier.

  • I'm more used to the images and tales of concentration camp victims and exterminations. This story of lost souls forced to drift around the European continent (mostly on foot) in pre-World War II -- people denied passports or any other identification papers -- was a revelation to me.
    Anyone interested in what the period between the two World Wars meant to the common German citizen should seriously consider reading this fine novel. I have not found anyone better to describe man's inhumanity to man than Erich Maria Remarque.
    Who is to decide who is human detritus? Flotsam, indeed!

  • Flotsam is the third Remarque book I have read and unfortunately it lacks the power and emotion of 'All Quiet On The Western Front' and 'A Time To Love And A Time To Die' which I consider two of the best novels I've read. The book is set in Europe preceding World War 2. It concerns Kern, a jew and Stiener, a political disidant, both made stateless refugees by nazi Germany. Both are tossed from country to country like hot potatoes. The rest of Europe, disgustingly unconcerned for them and thousands of others in their plite. While an interesting subject and quite a good read, I never felt I was close to the characters and it tended to meander a little. Maybe I expected too much.
