Young Adolf

by Beryl Bainbridge

Young Adolf Synopsis

Paranoid, wilful, lazy, the young Adolf Hitler turns up in Liverpool to stay with his brother Alois and sister-in-law Bridget. Hailed by Alois as a student and an artist, Adolf soon irritates his family beyond measure by his constant sponging and his tendency to get into serious trouble with the English. Surely this is a young man who will never amount to anything.

Young Adolf Press Reviews

'At once funny and appalling . splendid occasions of high farce . rich in prophetic ironies' OBSERVER *Bainbridge has created a lucicrously funny farce, behind which lurks the destructive power of repressed fantasies & deeply felt resentments' S. TIMES *Bainbridge at her whimsical best, putting fantastic events firmly in a beautifully observed background.' D. TEL. *'A delightfully original conception, executed with great skill and humour' John Fowles
