About the Author

Reviews
A remarkable novel, the first in English to give us a nuanced portrait of life in Communist East Germany, its absurdity, its menace, and its pervasive sense of betrayal.--Joseph Kanon, author of The Good German
Philip Sington has managed something quite remarkable...a flawless, gripping and penetrating depiction of life in the former East Germany, wrapped up as a literary thriller...His feeling for not just time and place, but atmosphere and way of life is perfect in a way that no other Western writer, not even John le Carré, has achieved.--Peter Millar
The Valley of Unknowing is simply superb: affecting but never melodramatic, literary but never less than thrilling. Though Krug is self-pitying, he wins our sympathy...His story, like the manuscript he grudgingly admire, is 'truthfully, tenderly drawn.'--David Evans
