Wolfgang Hilbig’s magnificent short stories are his actual main work: distinctive journeys of discovery through the landscape of the soul, with no comparison in the whole of German-language literature. With enormous poetic imagination and a uniquely suggestive language, Wolfgang Hilbig writes about everyday and working life in the GDR, about the maelstroms of reunification, about his lost and finally found place in the world. Above all, however, these short stories are about how a man can find himself, despite all enticements and threats – and about the greatest and ultimate adventure of our times: the discovery of one’s own self.
This collection – volume 2 of his complete works – compiles all Wolfgang Hilbig’s short stories in the order of their origin. It also includes a number of unpublished texts and an afterword by Katja Lange-Müller.
