Book Detail

The Wall

£12.00

Considered her greatest literary achievement, Marlen Haushofer’s The Wall is the story of one quite ordinary, unnamed middle-aged woman who awakens to find she is the last living human on Earth. Surmising her solitude to be the result of a too successful military experiment, she begins the terrifying work of not only survival, but self-renewal. Variously interpreted as an ironic Robinson Crusoe story, a philosophical parable of human isolation and as dystopian fiction, The Wall is at once a simple survival story and a disturbing meditation on twentieth-century history. First published in English in 1991, Quartet Books are proud to issue a brand new edition for 2013.
