Little Man, What Now? ( German title: Kleiner Mann, was nun? ) is a novel by Hans Fallada , which was first published in 1932, the year before Adolf Hitler's rise to power. The book was an immediate success in Germany , where today it is considered to be a modern classic, given its intense descriptions of the last days of the Weimar Republic . The book was also the breakthrough for Fallada as a writer of fiction.

In 1934 the film Little Man, What Now? was released in the United States . It clearly reflects the situation of the young German mind during that period, especially the effects of war and the economic shut down.

The bookkeeper Johannes Pinneberg and his girlfriend, the sales girl Emma "Lämmchen" Mörschel, marry when they find out that she is two months pregnant. Hardly any time passes until Pinneberg is fired and must find a new job in the middle of the economic crisis. All rights reserved.
