About this title:

Synopsis: First published to acclaim in Germany, The Wall chronicles the life of the last surviving human on earth, an ordinary middle-aged woman who awakens one morning to find that everyone else has vanished. Assuming her isolation to be the result of a military experiment gone awry, she begins the terrifying work of survival and self-renewal. This novel is at once a simple and moving tale and a disturbing meditation on humanity.

From the Back Cover: I can allow myself to write the truth; all the people for whom I have lied throughout my life are dead...” writes the heroine of Marlen Haushofer’s The Wall, a quite ordinary, unnamed middle-aged woman who awakens to find she is the last living person. Accompanied by her dog, she begins the terrifying work of survival, and eventually, self-renewal. The Wall is at once a simple and moving chronicle—of growing potatoes and beans, of hoping for a calf, of counting matches, of forgetting the taste of sugar and the use of one’s name and a disturbing meditation on 20th-century history. Now a major motion picture from Music Box Films, The Wall is a haunting study of what a person can love when everything has been taken away.
