Hannes  Wader - In Spite of Everything


Between politics and poetry: A moving contemporary record of Federal Germany

In Spite of Everything is the story of Hannes Wader's life. A road movie of someone always on the go – a major social novel about Germany, written by the legendary singer-songwriter himself. His narrative is as powerful, poignant, epic and poetic as his songs, and in this book Hannes Wader tells readers about everything that has influenced him and his music: post-war Germany, the labour and peace movements, German Autumn, communism and the fall of the Wall. A life among women and artists, with dogs and horses, George Brassens and Bob Dylan.

This book is Hannes Wader through and through: critically reflective, especially towards himself, packed with humour and respect for all those who are dreaming of a better world.
