About the Author

Uwe Timm was born in Hamburg, Germany. His first novel, Hot Summer, was published in 1974. New Directions publishes five of his novels, including the German best selling, The Invention of Curried Sausage, and the award winning, Morenga. After apprenticing as a furrier, Timm studied philosophy and philology in Paris and Munich. He is the 1989 winner of the Munich Literary Prize. He has been called an extraordinary story teller (The New Yorker) and one of the best living German Writers (Kirkus Reviews).

Breon Mitchell is a professor of Germanic studies and comparative literature and the director of the Lilly Library at Indiana University. He was awarded the Helen and Kurt Wolff Prize for his translation of Uwe Timm's Morenga in 2004.

Reviews

"More than a story about historical events, Morenga is a chilling portrayal of the loss of humanity, the blatant disregard for human life, and the misuse of power."
