It gives an excellent idea of the cultural life (artists
, poets, musicians ) in Vienna, Berlin and Munich in 1913. You need to know the artistic movements e.g. Der Blaue Reiter and what is meant by Futurism and Cubism and it helps to have some idea of the poems written by Rilke, George and the short stories of Kafka. The book is very enjoyable and well written if you are familiar with the cultural scene of 1913 in the German speaking countries.

A fantastic tour de force 1 May 2014
By Victoria Zlotkowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a thrill ride for anybody interested in European history. To be exact the year 1913. Florian Illies skillfully pulls together month by month the larger and smaller literary, cultural, medical, poetic, political, musical, artistic and gossipy events of this pivotal year, and with a sharp tongue, sometimes almost a little too sharp, weaves a story as it can only be woven in hindsight, with the distance and of our elevated viewpoint.
I enjoyed reading about so many influential people's lives of this year, parallel to each other, cross references being made which were impossible to see back then. It was refreshing and sometimes I felt in his writing a little lacking of some respect, but even this I could forgive the author. It amuses!
Especially since we know how it all ended.
