"Having escaped from a Nazi concentration camp in Germany in 1937, and later a camp in Rouen, the nameless twenty-seven-year-old German narrator of Seghers's multilayered masterpiece ends up in the dusty seaport of Marseille. Along the way he is asked to deliver a letter to a man named Weidel in Paris and discovers Weidel has committed suicide, leaving behind a suitcase containing letters and the manuscript of a novel. As he makes his way to Marseille to find Weidel's widow, the narrator assumes the identity of a refugee named Seidler, though the authorities think he is really Weidel. There in the giant waiting room of Marseille, the narrator converses with the refugees, listening to their stories over pizza and wine, while also gradually piecing together the story of Weidel, whose manuscript has shattered the narrator's "deathly boredom," bringing him to a deeper awareness of the transitory world the refugees inhabit as they wait and wait for that most precious of possessions: transit papers."--Page 4 of cover

Anna Seghers, one of the most important German women writers of the twentieth century, was born Netty Reiling on November 19, 1900 in Mainz on the Rhine. On both her parents' sides she came from Jewish families. Her father, Isidor Reiling (1867--1940), was a member of the Israelitische Religionsgemeinschaft in Mainz, the conservative branch of the Jewish community, and he and his young wife raised their daughter in the orthodox faith. Her first publications appeared under the name Seghers—probably after the Dutch painter Hercules Seghers, a contemporary of Rembrandt—but originally without a first name. The author then chose Anna Seghers as her pen name and public persona and kept it for the rest of her life. In 1930 Seghers published a collection of stories, Auf dem Weg zur amerikanischen Botschaft (1933, On the Road to the American Embassy), in which she displayed the full range of her work and talent. When Hitler came to power in January 1933 Seghers did not immediately flee the country. However, after the burning of the Reichstag in February, she was briefly arrested and upon her release left immediately for Switzerland. Like so many other exiles she then went on to France where she and her family settled on the outskirts of Paris, in Bellevue
