Read full description of the books Tiefland:Swing era Germany. A young Leni Riefenstahl is acclaimed as the greatest female filmmaker of the 20th century. Dancer, actor, screenwriter, and director, she is renowned as a consummate artist. Then come the atrocities of the Third Reich and suddenly she is dismissed and despised as a Nazi whore. Tiefland is a fictionalized account of her struggle to restore her reputation and her desperate attempt to regain the adoration she once enjoyed.
Calvin Glover nudges the envelope of historical fiction. Drawing heavily from Leni Riefenstahl: A Memoir, several biographies that stake out conflicting viewpoints, and archival news accounts of the day, he has fashioned Tiefland as a dramatic metaphor. It is a literary collage mixing fact and fiction to create a fascinating portrayal of a complex, famous, and notorious woman.
