Product Details

Praise

“Anna Seghers was an admirable woman in many ways, but above all she was a remarkable humanist: she became a model of cultural resistance and ideological struggle who cut across borders, and who, still today, thanks to her work, transcends time and lives on in our memory.” —Fernanda Melchor

“Seghers was concerned with major questions, and she pursued those questions in her fiction relentlessly. What does fascism do to a person’s soul? she asks again and again. . . . Seghers’ stories are also moving and deeply intelligent.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Segher’s masterly title story, written near the end of the war, casts an idyllic school outing in a dark pall, anticipating the fates of the innocent children. The result is classic European storytelling at its most potent.” —Publishers Weekly

“Although they were penned between 1925 and 1965, there is an immediacy to these tales that cannot be ignored. . . Translator Margot Bettauer Dembo is an excellent guide through the twists and turns and small delights of language on every page.” —Katie Yee, Lit Hub
