This is Christina's favorite novel by her favorite German author. I would like to read it. Apparently, Uwe Johnson is not in print in English translations these days so it may take some tracking to find a copy (Christina and I did find a copy at the Strand- only one and in poor condition) but I am anxious to get to it.
