The third volume of Wolfgang Hilbig’s works combined the three long narratives ‘The Women’, ‘Old Boneyard’ and ‘The Tidings of the Trees’. Evolved from the author’s experiences in East Germany’s crumbling industry and his observation of its final collapse after unification, these texts run riot in the nightly landscape of a monstrous imagination. They are among the most impressive literary products of the past decades and are also suitable as an introduction to Hilbig’s work. An afterword by Ingo Schulze completes the volume.
