About the Author

Ingeborg Bachmann is the author of Darkness Spoken, Malina, and Simultan, among others. Hans Höller is professor of modern German literature at Salzburg University, and has edited several works of Thomas Bernhard and Ingeborg Bachmann. Mike Mitchell has also translated Peter Handke's Till Day You do Part or A Question of Light and Max Frisch's An Answer from the Silence, both published by Seagull Books.

Reviews

"Far from the elliptical voice most readily associated with Bachmann, one is struck by the directness and simple honesty of the [War Diary]; the passions, stubbornness, and humor of a young woman, and her real fear, are all profoundly moving. But one also gets a sense of her literary tastes at this time (Baudelaire, Rilke and Mann) and the philosophical fascination which would lead to her academic career and, one might add, the clarity and precision of her later writing."--Modern Poetry in Translation
