Ludwig Thoma


German author, publisher and editor, who gained popularity through his partially exaggerated description of everyday Bavarian life.

Thoma first studied Forestry then Law until 1893. Subsequently, he settled down as a lawyer, at first in Dachau, later in Munich.

After 1899, he worked for the magazine Simplicissimus and published humorous narrations, comedies, novels and stories. Thoma satirized Bavarian rural and small-town life.

In the later years of his life, he wrote nationalistic propaganda agitating against left-wing politicians.

During World War I he served as a paramedic. In July 1917 he joined the German Fatherland Party.

His best known works are Ein Münchner im Himmel (A Municher in Heaven), the Lausbubengeschichten (Scoundrel Stories) that was adapted into a movie in 1964 under the title Tales of a Young Scamp.

He died 26 August 26 1921, Rottach.
