Publisher's Synopsis

Not a Novel is the best of Jenny Erpenbeck's non-fiction. Moving and insightful, the pieces range from personal essays and literary criticism to reflections on Germany's history, interrogating life and politics, language and freedom, hope and despair. By turns both luminous and explosive, this collection shows one of the most acclaimed European writers reckoning with her country's divided past, and responding to the world today with intelligence and humanity.

Our Booksellers Say...

"This book gave me a completely different perspective on the fall of the Berlin wall: how it involved the loss of a way of life for so many people, and is the source of so much bittersweet emotion. Erpenbeck's prose is stunning - this is essay-writing at its finest."
