»Julia Franck (born 1970, in East Berlin) is a German writer. (...) Franck is the author of five novels, one short story collections, and the editor of a collection of essays. Her three most recent novels, Lagerfeuer, Die Mittagsfrau, and Rücken an Rücken, as well as the collection Grenzübergänge, engage explicitly with twentieth-century German history. Lagerfeuer is set in the West Berlin refugee camp Berlin-Marienfelde in the 1970s and follows four main characters, one of whom, Nelly Senff, has fled East Berlin with her two young children. Rücken an Rücken is also set during the years of Germany's division, ending in the early 1960s, and Die Mittagsfrau spans from World War I to divided Germany of the 1950s.« -- More information: Wikipedia
