Quick overview Whilst awaiting trial for war crimes in an Israeli prison, Howard W Campbell Jr sets down his memoirs on an old German typewriter. He has used such a typewriter before, when he worked as a Nazi propagandist under Goebbels. Though that was before he agreed to become a spy for US military. Is Howard guilty?
Product description

From ratty attic to Auschwitz and back again, Mother Night is the confessions of Howard W Campbell Jr - an American, a notorious Nazi propagandist, and a US counter-spy - not a moral man. This mournful, macabre and diabolically funny tale of unsung heroism uses acrid humour to underline the horror of its themes. It is one of the blackest comedies ever.
