Tell the truth Ed, Lunatic Express is your autobiography under a pseudonym...

TheDeathShip.jpg

A picture of a First Edition of THE DEATH SHIP published in German in 1926.

It was translated in English---or at least published in English---B Traven said he actually wrote it in English----in 1934. The English version is longer than the original German edition.


Bruce Catton called the book "..a startling novel about the horrible things that can happen to a man in the cock-eyed post-war world of Europe if he can't prove he is who he says he is..."

It has been said---unproven--that Albert Einstein named THE DEATH SHIP as the book he would like to take with him to a desert island.
