Natascha Wurzbach was born in Munich in 1933 and studied English and German literature, history, and philosophy at the universities of Munich, Freiburg, and Edinburgh. From 1975 to 1999 she was a professor of English literature at Cologne University. She has published on subjects ranging from balladry to modern literature and has published autobiographical stories as well as poems. Translator Raleigh Whitinger has taught German language, literature, and translation studies at the University of Alberta since the early 1970s. He has published articles on German literature since Romanticism and a book on naturalist drama (Johannes Schlaf). Since 2002 he has been the editor of Seminar: A Journal of Germanic Studies. His publications include translations of three nineteenth-century works.
In heartbreaking detail, Natascha Wurzbach recounts what it was like to grow up in 1930s Germany as the sensitive, lonely daughter of intellectual parents, on the run from the Nazi regime that her father openly criticized. Whether she is telling us about her family's attempt to conceal their Jewish origins, the unexpected gift of getting to live in the Bavarian countryside when she was very young, or the pain of finding (and losing) young love, Wurzbach reveals herself to be a master storyteller as she recounts the violence of the Nazi regime in the everyday life of dissenting Germans.''--Julie Rak
