Remember back in the summer, when we were the first to tell you about Norman Mailer‘s new Hitler novel, The Castle in the Forest? At the time, I mentioned that it was following in the footsteps of a comic book called The New Adventures of Hitler, in which young Adolf putters about Liverpool in 1912, trying to figure out what to do with his life. Although I’d vaguely recalled that the story was based on actual claims in the memoirs of Hitler’s Irish sister-in-law, I never realized that the story had inspired an earlier work of fiction: Young Adolf, a Beryl Bainbridge novel published back in 1978. Thanks to Gary Indiana, who describes it to us as “a beautifully funny novel” and “one of the most hilarious books on Hitler ever written,” I’ll be making a trip to the library to see if they’ve got a copy (as of Thursday morning, Amazon.com only had one copy left).
