When Monika Maron was awarded the German National Prize in 2009 – the anniversary year of the fall of the Berlin Wall – it was above all a political signal. The honours went to a writer and an intellectual who had endorsed, critically accompanied and commented on German reunification from the very outset. Monika Maron is not the type to be co-opted, she raises objections and intervenes, she is uncomfortable when she has to be.
The book Two Brothers compiles Monika Maron’s essays and speeches on German reunification and its consequences, on the state of the unified nation, on questions of the common past and future of East and West.
