About the author (1988)

Gert Hofmann (1931-1993), "the most singular writer to come out of Germany since Heinrich Boll" ("The Times" [London]), was born in Limbach, Saxony. "Lichtenberg and the Little Flower Girl" was the last novel he wrote before his death. Michael Hofmann, son of Gert Hofmann, was born in Freiburg, West Germany, in 1957. He is a renowned poet, translator, and essayist. New Directions publishes his widely praised translation of Franz Kafka's "Amerika: The Man Who Disappeared".

CHRISTOPHER MIDDLETON was born in Cornwall but has lived for the past thirty years in Austin, Texas, where teaches German and comparative literature. He travels regularly to Germany, France and Turkey, and his poetry belongs to no one country or context. The Sheep Meadow Press has published three of his books previously: The Balcony Tree, Intimate Chronicles, and The Word Pavilion.
