Florian Illies - 1913: The Year Before the Storm

One of the most original and satisfying works of non-fiction in recent memory, 1913 offers a month-by-month chronicle of the year that led up to WWI, told entirely through vignettes drawn from the worlds of art, music, literature, politics, and culture. The end result is an evocative, entertaining, and sometimes troubling portrait of the world marching itself to war.
