Wolfgang Hilbig

Wolfgang Hilbig (author page at Amazon) has become one of Germany’s most important living writers. His early work, of which the piece here is typical, stands as one of East Germany’s richest literary legacies. This year he was awarded Germany’s Büchner Prize for his life’s work. The only major work of his to appear in English was the novella Knacker’s Yard, published several years ago in Grand Street (Issue 48). In 1985 Hilbig moved to West Germany but has remained a profoundly East German writer. (updated 5/2003)
