Kerstin Specht’s award-winning play chronicles the triumph and tragedy of writer Marieluise Fleisser. Fleisser reached her peak of fame in 1920s Berlin, when her plays were directed by Bertolt Brecht. A devastating personal and creative collapse followed, as she was ostracized by the literary establishment, her family, and the men in her life. Her work would not be again recognized until several decades later. This volume also includes Specht’s The Time of the Tortoise.
