Product description


‘A tender story bolstered by sensitive intelligent writing that is impossible to pick fault with’ -- The Herald

‘Dreamlike and richly evocative autobiographical tale of a femme fatale - haunting, moody stuff in the vein of Djuna Barnes’ -- The Guardian

About the Author

Wolfgang Koeppen was born in 1906 and died ninety years later in Munich. A journalist for left-wing papers in Weimar Berlin, he spent the early Nazi period in the Netherlands, returning in the war years to work for the film company that produced Fritz Lang's 'Metropolis'. He published five novels, two in the 1930s and three in the 1950s. Michael Hofmann is a poet, and was awarded the PEN/Book-of-the-month Club Prize for translation. He has translated Joseph Roth's works for Granta.
