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

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.

Parting from phantoms : selected writings, 1990-1994 by Christa Wolf( Book )
38 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in 5 languages and held by 729 libraries worldwide
The most prominent writer of the German Democratic Republic and its most famous cultural export, Wolf was called East Germany's "Mother Confessor" and treated by the West German press as emblematic of GDR intellectuals. After reunification, Wolf published a novella titled What Remains, which was bitterly attacked by the press as a belated attempt to establish herself as a victim of the Stasi (the GDR's secret police). The criticism discredited Wolf as a cultural hero in the eyes of many Germans and plunged her into a deep personal crisis. Parting from Phantoms shows Wolf coming to terms with her ambiguous past and an unforgiving present

August by Christa Wolf( Book )
28 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 480 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
