New book with scuffing and shelf wear to covers.
An Eighth Day View:
An East German schoolteacher, is jolted into an awareness of his mortality by a seeming heart attack. The actions he takes afterword put him on a collisioin course with the state in which he has painlessly, if numbly, lived his life. The rusults, while harsh, are not unwelcome as he finds a new vitality in a world seen through new eyes. Translated by Leila Vennewitz.
