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

Leibhaftig : Erzählung by Christa Wolf( Book )

51 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 16 languages and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Suffering severe abdominal pain, a woman is rushed to the emergency room of a decrepit urban hospital. Her soaring temperature, her deepening distress, her body's resistance to medicine all confound her doctors, who operate repeatedly." "Drifting in and out of consciousness, she endures a fever dream in which the boundaries between wakefulness, memory, and delusion blur then totally dissolve. Old friends and comforting strangers materialize at her bedside, and as they talk to her, and as the nurses poke and prod, her sense of self, of being an "I" who acts rather than a "she" who is acted upon, begins to slip away. Gurney rides through the hospital's windowless corridors become fantastic travels through the halls of hell. Remembered snatches of Goethe and of "upbuilding" Communist propaganda provide ironic running commentary on her predicament, for the scene, half real, half hallucinated, is the former East Berlin; the time, just before the fall of the Wall."--Jacket

August by Christa Wolf( Book )

27 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 469 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
