"[Joseph Roth] is now recognized as one of the twentieth century's great writers."—Anthony Heilbut, Los Angeles Times Book Review The Joseph Roth revival has finally gone mainstream with the thunderous reception for What I Saw, a book that has become a classic with five hardcover printings. Glowingly reviewed, What I Saw introduces a new generation to the genius of this tortured author with its "nonstop brilliance, irresistible charm and continuing relevance" (Jeffrey Eugenides, New York Times Book Review). As if anticipating Christopher Isherwood, the book re-creates the tragicomic world of 1920s Berlin as seen by its greatest journalistic eyewitness. In 1920, Joseph Roth, the most renowned German correspondent of his age, arrived in Berlin, the capital of the Weimar Republic. He produced a series of impressionistic and political essays that influenced an entire generation of writers, including Thomas Mann and the young Christopher Isherwood. Translated and collected here for the first time, these pieces record the violent social and political paroxysms that constantly threatened to undo the fragile democracy that was the Weimar Republic. Roth, like no other German writer of his time, ventured beyond Berlin's official veneer to the heart of the city, chronicling the lives of its forgotten inhabitants: the war cripples, the Jewish immigrants from the Pale, the criminals, the bathhouse denizens, and the nameless dead who filled the morgues. Warning early on of the dangers posed by the Nazis, Roth evoked a landscape of moral bankruptcy and debauched beauty—a memorable portrait of a city and a time of commingled hope and chaos. What I Saw, like no other existing work, records the violent social and political paroxysms that compromised and ultimately destroyed the precarious democracy that was the Weimar Republic.

In this book there are personality conflicts, new formed student friendships and a humanitarian commitment to the villages that participated in a research project. The main character is a non-traditional research student, named Marie that has a psychologically disturbed research partner. Throughout, this novel, Marie is subjected to the bad behavior of her research partner. Her partner has a number of psychological problems ranging from bipolar to schizophrenia that affects their relationship. In the story, whenever, Marie tries to understand and help her partner with her behavior issues she gets worse. Marie made a lot of new friends while she is on this research project, with some of the other students participating in this research project but they were assigned to other areas of Uganda, which was miles away from her and that caused her to be alone with this crazy lady. Marie's research partner also in the story tries to pit their African business colleagues that are working with them on this project, against her by using subtle racial tactics, aimed at Marie. The primary purpose for their research project was to interview the natives in the villages on their perception and preventative strategies for contracting Malaria. The ultimate goal of the research project was to provide the natives in the Malaria endemic areas of Uganda, Africa with documentation on the best practices for preventing Malaria. Marie had a lot of problems with her research she believed her site mate was trying to set their project up for failure. In certain instances, Marie's partner would disrespect the native's customs and embarrass her. Overall, the events in this novel are factual but the characters names have been changed to protect their privacy. The Book cover is a print especially made for the author from her friend Fred Mutebi. Fred is one of Uganda's famous Master Woodcutting Printmaking Artist.
