Description
(Winner of the 2003 Prix Goncourt Award) In 1948, playwright Bertolt Brecht returns to East Berlin after years of exile, quickly establishing a drama troupe. Surrounded by great artists, Brecht is also encircled by the secret police, who are eager to discover how far his Communist sympathies extend. Recruiting Brecht's young lover Maria Eich into their service, the regime will attempt to control both the writer and his work. Praised by A.N. Wilson as "the most brilliant evocation of those communist days and the divided Germany," Jacques-Pierre Amette's 2003 fictional re-creation of this key time in Brecht's life won France's prestigious Prix Goncourt Award.

"Built around an impeccably constructed narration, carried by writing of a grand elegance, this novel seduces by its classical beauty and intelligent strength."Le Figaro (France)
