Oakland - The Seated Diesels discuss "The Radetzky March"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Tuesday, September 16 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes The Seated Diesels back to the store to discuss The Radetzky March by Joseph Roth on Tuesday, September 16th at 7pm. The Radetzky March is Joseph Roth’s masterful portrayal of an Empire’s rise and fall, framed by the story of three generations of the von Trotta family. From the battlefield of Solferino, where a young infantry man’s actions catapult his family into the aristocracy, to the entombment of the last Habsburg emperor and the moral awakening of a privileged noble, Roth’s classic saga encompasses the entire social fabric of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

This event is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Short biography
Joseph Roth was born into a Jewish family in the Austrian-Hungarian Empire and served in the Imperial army in World War I. After the war, he became a journalist and travelled widely, including making numerous trips to Russia. During this period he wrote several novels, novellas, and short stories, including the family saga The Radetzky March (1932). His socialist-leaning political views forced him to flee Germany permanently after Hitler's rise to power in 1933. Thereafter he lived and worked alternately in Amsterdam and Paris. He died in the latter city in alcoholism and poverty in 1939.
