Dolores & Imperio
The Book


Press Commentary

“‘Dolores & Imperio’, dizzying and gorgeous like the Flamenco and maybe soon nabbed for television or film, tells of a person’s curse, who knows how to protect himself, except against the past.” ‘Dance children, dance, the night is long’
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

„ It is a caprice of destiny if the extremes of a century are concentrated in the life-Story of one man. The life of Sylvin Rubinstein is such a caprice."
Welt am Sonntag

“A breathtaking historical and high-ranking factual novel. An unbelievable and wonderful book of memories, reflection, situations, sequences, which clearly could have been written by Bunuel or Fellini.”
Dresdner Neueste Nachrichten

“Kuno Kruse has not only written a bountiful life portrait, but an authentic historical document.”

"In the literature the life-story of Sylvin Rubinstein would been called a “unerhörte Begebenheit”, in real life we find no adequate word."
Der Spiegel
