An East German writer, awaiting a call from the hospital where her brother is undergoing brain surgery, instead receives news of a massive nuclear accident at Chernobyl, one thousand miles away. In the space of a single day, in a potent, lyrical stream of thought, the narrator confronts both mortality and life and above all, the import of each moment lived-open, as Wolf reveals, to infinite analysis.
Christa Wolf, born in 1929, is the author of many novels and stories including Cassandra, Pattern of Childhood, No Place on Earth, The Quest for Christa T., and What Remains and Other Stories, the last published by the University of Chicago Press.
