Book Description

 In Berlin, 1930, The name kasebier is on everyone's lips. A literal combination of the German words for "cheese" And "beer," it's an unglamorous name for an unglamorous man - a small-time crooner who performs nightly on a shabby stage for labourers, secretaries, and shopkeepers. Until the press shows up. In the blink of an eye, this everyman is made a star: one who can sing songs for a troubled time. Margot weissmann, the arts patron, hosts Champagne breakfasts for kasebier; muschler the banker builds a theatre in his honour; willi frachter, a parvenu writer, makes a killing from kasebier-themed business ventures and books. All the while, the journalists who catapulted kasebier to fame watch the monstrous media machine churn in amazement - and are aghast at the demons they have unleashed.
