Description:

New York. 1975. Scribner's. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 15. 307 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Winston Potter. 0684143739. keywords:. inventory # 23597. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Set in postwar Germany, its theme the individualís responsibility for the nationís guilt, this powerful novel introduces to American readers an important new European writer. This is the story of two people, a young girl and a middle-aged man. They both live in Hamburg, but their lives do not touch until the close of the novel, which alternates between them. Heike Lane is twenty-four years old, born during World War II. She speaks for herself, revealing in scene after vivid scene her childhood and youth, her gradual discovery of Germanyís past and its lingering racism, her groping toward a feeling of purpose and commitment. Rainer Gebhardt, a middle-aged writer and wanderer, was a Nazi child and served in the war. His story is given in a series of film scripts which take him through many experiences and capitulations, bringing him finally to a responsible act, which fails. Through these two lives Heike Doutine conveys a nationís spirit, a composite of guilt, resignation, and hope. Written with rushing power and crowded with episodes GERMAN REQUIEM is often bitterly ironic - and always compelling. Heike Doutine was born in Thuringia (East Germany) in 1945. She started writing poetry while still in elementary school and published her first volume of poems at nineteen. She now lives in Hamburg where she studied at the University of Hamburg and later worked as a free-lance journalist. She is married and has a small son. Heike Doutineís novels have already earned her a European reputation, but GERMAN REQUIEM (published in German under the title WANKE NICHT MEIN VATERLAND) is the first to be translated into English. .
