Quest for Christa T. by Christa Wolf

Book Description

When "The Quest for Christa T. "was first published in East Germany ten years ago, there was an immediate storm: bookshops in East Berlin were given instructions to sell it only to well-known customers professionally involved in literary matters; at the annual meeting of East German Writers Conference, Mrs Wolf's new book was condemmed. Yet the novel has nothing eplicity to do with politics.

Books By Author Christa Wolf

August by Christa Wolf August, Hardback (March 2014)

The author was arguably the best-known and most influential writer in the former East Germany. In this title, she revisits her stay at a tuberculosis hospital in the winter of 1946, a real-life event that was the inspiration for the closing scenes of her 1976 novel Patterns of Childhood.

City of Angels: or, The Overcoat of Dr. Freud by Christa Wolf City of Angels: or, The Overcoat of Dr. Freud, Paperback (March 2014)

Three years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the author was granted access to her newly declassified Stasi files. What was surprising was a thin green folder whose contents told an unfamiliar - and disturbing - story. This autobiographical final novel is an account of what it was like to reckon with such a shocking discovery.

They Divided the Sky by Christa Wolf They Divided the Sky, Paperback (January 2013)

First published in 1963, in East Germany, They Divided the Sky tells the story of a young couple, living in the new, socialist, East Germany, whose relationship is tested to the extreme not only because of the political positions they gradually develop but, very concretely, by the Berlin Wall, which went up on August 13, 1961.
