Winner of the 2003 Prix Goncourt, a novel hailed by the times literary supplement as "a delicate, elegiac tale of political failure and defeated love." A fictional story based on the final years of playwright Bertolt Brecht, "Brecht's Mistress" is a literary Cold War thriller that "recalls le Carre" ("Daily Telegraph") in its evocation of the grim world of postwar East Germany and its depiction of personal destinies intertwined with superpower rivalry. Inspired by an actual photograph taken of Brecht and a beautiful unknown young woman, Amette's novel opens on October 22, 1948, the day of Brecht's return to the Soviet-controlled zone of Berlin.
