Accident: A Day's News : A Novel (Phoenix Fiction)

by Christa Wolf


On a flawless spring day in late April, an East German writer awaits a call from the hospital where her brother is undergoing brain surgery and instead receives news of a massive nuclear accident at Chernobyl, one thousand miles away. In a potent, lyrical stream of thought, the narrator confronts both mortality and life and, above all, the importance of each moment lived.
