Summary (From the publisher):

The anti-heroine of Silent Close No. 6 is Rosalind Polkowski, a disaffected journalist who is hired by a retired East German high official to transcribe his memoirs. He lives in a relatively splendid isolation from the society he once governed, at Number Six Silent Close, a compound for members of the Communist nomenclatura. His life on behalf of the party is filtered through the critical consciousness of the woman who is his captive audience and scribe.

This subtle reassessment of Communist rule across eastern Europe is especially timely. It has been well-received in the new Germany, where it won the prestigious Heinrich von Kleist Prize in 1992.
