About the Author

Before writing novels, Max Annas worked as a journalist and renowned film critic. He lived for many years in South Africa but currently resides in Berlin. His fiction was included in Berlin Noir, edited by Thomas W├Ârtche (published by Akashic Books). The Farm is currently under film production in South Africa.
Rachel Hildebrandt Reynolds, founder of the Global Literature in Libraries Initiative (GLLI), is the translator of multiple novels from German to English, including Annas' The Wall, which World Literature Today listed as one of the 75 notable translations in 2019.


"[P]olished prose lifts the tale up, raises the tension step by step" --NY Journal of Books
"The Wall was a thrilling chase through an unusual and surprisingly frightening setting: a well-to-do gated community in South Africa [...] Moses is a compelling every-man protagonist, caught up in a case of mistaken identity, and the cinematic quality to the story telling takes you running right alongside him as he eludes capture." --Natalie Draper, librarian Richmond Public Library (Virginia)
"[Annas] turns this cat and mouse game into a life and death struggle that catches you up in its drama and suspense." --Lively Arts magazine
"[A] refreshing snappy crime caper" --The Herald (South Africa)
"The Wall is a breathless, irrepressible thriller that packs a punch." --NB Magazine
"75 Notable Translations of 2019," World Literature Today
"The story takes place over just two short hours -- filled with twists and turns and non-stop chases along the way. The Wall is an intense thriller, with second-by-second near misses [...] An exploration of racial profiling, class, exclusion, and chance." Shelf Unbound Magazine
