1992 0-7734-9679-3
This is a reassessment of the long-term effects of the writing of Alfred Andersch, a prominent figure in the literary life of the post-war Federal Republic. Besides his novels and short stories, he is remembered as a talented journalist-broadcaster, and played a crucial role as a mediator of unknown foreign literature in the cultural vacuum left by the defeat of Socialism in Germany.
