Biography's Source:


Gert Hofmann began his career as a prolific author of radio plays. He left Germany in 1951 to teach German literature at universities in Europe and America. He did not become a full-time writer or return to Germany until 1979, when his first prose work was published. Thereafter, he produced a book a year for the rest of his life.

His books have been translated into English by his son, Michael Hofmann, who is a poet and translator.
