With razor-sharp wit and plenty of black humor, Ernst Krenek describes the ambivalent mood in Vienna during the turbulent interwar period. In Kehraus um St. Stephan, all those meet who, through greed, selfishness and ruthlessness, contributed significantly to the social collapse that would eventually pave the way for fascism: impoverished aristocrats and unscrupulous industrialists, officers in desperate search of a new identity in a state that is no longer theirs, sleazy types who would do anything for money, and, of course, the young thing who sleeps her way to the top.
