The story of an East German woman who reached adolescence during World War II, embraced the new world order, had her enthusiasm and idealism gradually corroded by the crass materialists around her, married and had a family, and suddenly died a relatively young woman. Her heroism, that of the ordinary, intelligent and sensitive private person, becomes the story of a whole generation. The quest for Christa T. has no overt political theme, yet it is imbued with the awareness of political implications that only a socialist writer can have

1804: Die Brentanos haben zum Tee geladen. Man trifft sich in illustrer Runde in Winkel am Rhein. Unter die anwesenden Gäste mischen sich auch Heinrich von Kleist und Karoline von Gründerrode - beide Schriftsteller und beide auf der Suche nach einem Platz in der Welt. Die zwei Künstler merken schnell, dass sie sich nicht in die Gespräche der Teegesellschaft einfinden können. So bleiben sie auch an diesem Nachmittag Außenseiter, bis sie im jeweils anderen eine verwandte Seele erkennen. Heinrich von Kleist und Karoline von Gründerrode kehren alsbald den ihnen fremden Diskussionen den Rücken zu und brechen zu einem ausgedehnten Spaziergang auf. Was beide schon vermuteten, bestätigt sich: Im jeweils anderen erkennen sie einen Seelenverwandten, sind sie doch immer Fremde geblieben in einer ihnen eng und feindlich erscheinenden Welt. Da ist kein Ort. Nirgends. Wenige Jahre später begehen beide Selbstmord

August by Christa Wolf( Book )

30 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christa Wolf was arguably the best-known and most influential writer in the former East Germany. Having grown up during the Nazi regime, she and her family were forced to flee their home like many others, nearly starving to death in the process. Her earliest novels were controversial because they contained veiled criticisms of the Communist regime which landed her on government watch lists. Her past continued to permeate her work and her life, as she said, "You can only fight sorrow when you look it in the eye." August is Christa Wolf's last piece of fiction, written in a single sitting as an anniversary gift to her husband. In it, 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

31 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gesundwerden bedeutet, Kranksein nicht mehr für den einzig möglichen Zustand zu halten. Zu dieser Erkenntnis gelangt die Erzählerin, nachdem sie wochenlang gegen eine lebensbedrohliche Krankheit gekämpft hat. Vom Aufenthalt im Krankenhaus, vom Umgang mit Ärzten und Pflegepersonal, aber auch von der Auseinandersetzung mit sich selbst, mit der eigenen Geschichte und dem Staat, in dem sie lebt, wird hier berichtet, vielschichtig und mit scharfer Beobachtungsgabe. "Ein starkes Stück Rekonvaleszentenliteratur", urteilte die Süddeutsche Zeitung über Christa Wolfs Geschichte einer Krankheit, die weit mehr als eine körperliche ist

City of angels or : the overcoat of Dr. Freud by Christa Wolf( Book )

28 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stunning final novel from East Germany's most acclaimed writer Three years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the writer Christa Wolf was granted access to her newly declassified Stasi files. Known for her defiance and outspokenness, Wolf was not especially surprised to discover forty-two volumes of documents produced by the East German secret police. But what was surprising was a thin green folder whose contents told an unfamiliar'and disturbing'story: in the early 1960s, Wolf herself had been an informant for the Communist government. And yet, thirty years on, she had absolutely no recollection of it. Wolf's extraordinary autobiographical final novel is an account of what it was like to reckon with such a shocking discovery. Based on the year she spent in Los Angeles after these explosive revelations, City of Angels is at once a powerful examination of memory and a surprisingly funny and touching exploration of L.A., a city strikingly different from any Wolf had ever visited. Even as she reflects on the burdens of twentieth-century history, Wolf describes the pleasures of driving a Geo Metro down Wilshire Boulevard and watching episodes of Star Trek late at night. Rich with philosophical insights, personal revelations, and vivid descriptions of a diverse city and its citizens, City of Angels is a profoundly humane and disarmingly honest novel'and a powerful conclusion to a remarkable career in letters
