Pam Baddeley | 207 comments Hi - not sure if something has gone wrong as I found this one with the cover I uploaded but showing all the text in German. The book was published in English in the UK. Also I forgot to mention it was a paperback not a hard cover.

Cullen Kisner (cullen_leeann) | 83 comments Hi again! I'm not sure about the German issue... I looked at the edition with the cover you sent and it was in English. The book is in hardcover.

This is not the only edition of the book, so you may be looking at other editions that are printed in German and are not hardcover.

Pam Baddeley | 207 comments Really confused in that case as my copy was paperback - I've now given it to the charity shop so can't recheck any of the other info. It did have that cover though. The reason I mentioned German - the blurb on that page in Goodreads is all in German.

"Kassandra, die "Seherin", ist die schillerndste Frauenfigur der griechischen Mythologie: Sie sagte dem übermächtigen Troja den Untergang voraus, wurde nicht gehört und musste ihre Prophezeiung mit dem Leben bezahlen. Christa Wolf hat ihre eigene Kassandra erfunden, an einem unbestimmten Ort zu einer unbestimmten Zeit: eine am Ende gescheiterte Heldin, die sich gegen die Gewalt der Diktatur und gegen die Macht der Männer auflehnt, nur ihrer eigenen Überzeugung verpflichtet."
