Author: Anna Seghers

Anna Seghers was born to Jewish parents in Mainz, Germany, in 1900, and died in East Berlin in 1983. She won the prestigious Kleist Prize for her debut work, The Revolt of the Fishermen of St. Barbara (1928) and received the Georg Büchner Prize in 1947 for services to German literature, primarily in recognition of her internationally bestselling novel of German pre-war antifascist resistance, The Seventh Cross (1942). During her exile period from Hitler's Germany (1933- 1947), she wrote two other enduring works, Transit (1944) and The Excursion of the Dead Girls (1943/4). These three works have recently been freshly translated into English. Seghers's work from her later period, as a citizen of East Germany, remains largely overlooked in English translation. Crossing: A Love Story (1971) was published in 2016 to critical acclaim. THREE WOMEN FROM HAITI (1980 / Diálogos / Lavender Ink, 2019) is the last story published by this influential German writer.
