These powerful and often very personal stories examine a wide range of topics, from sexual politics to the nature of memory.

In What Remains, an East German writer who is under observation by the secret police traces the way in which this almost constant surveillance gradually destroys every shred of normalcy in her life. In Exchanging Glances, a woman remembers, from a far distance in time, place, and politics, the flight of her family from the advancing Russian Army during World War II. And in the biting and very funny satire The New Life and Opinions of a Tomcat, we meet Max the cat, the devoted pet of a professor of applied psychology who is working on the realization of TOHUHA (Total Human Happiness), or the abolition of tragedy.

What Remains offers a fascinating introduction to Wolfs work.
