Notă biografică

Marlen Haushofer (1920-1970) was an Austrian author of short stories, novels, radio plays, and children's books. Her work has had a strong influence on many German-language writers, such as the Nobel Prize-winner Elfriede Jelinek, who dedicated one of her plays to her. The Wall was adapted into the 2012 film, directed by Julian Pölsler and starring Martina Gedeck.
