Threepenny Novel is a work of fiction written by Bertolt Brecht first published in Amsterdam by Allert de Lange (nl) in 1934 as Dreigroschenroman. The novel retains certain elements of the The Threepenny Opera – for instance, characters such as Macheath and Polly – but is essentially a completely separate work in tone, ambition and purpose.[1]
