Originally published in 1960 by Peter Owen, The Hooligan is a masterful psychological exploration of the making of a Nazi. Andreas Febler, the Head Clerk of the Town Council struggles with his own inadequacies and guilt.
He is seduced by the beyond-good-and-evil preachings of the Lumpenhunde (lower-class ruffians) and eventually becomes the deputy commandant of a concentration camp.
Rich in symbolism and written in a unique English style, the novel challenges and compels the reader to profoundly experience the phantasmagorical psyche of Andreas Febler.
