Bernhard Schlink is the author of The Reader, a novel based in post-World War II Germany that has become an enduring classic both here and throughout the world. Schlink’s studies of strong women and moral conflict are second to none.
In his new novel, Olga, Schlink gives us an epic about a woman caught in the 20th century who is far ahead of her time, leaping through some of the most cataclysmic events of the 20th century. Spanning continents, this novel is as much a drama of a highly intelligent woman who rebels against the constraints of a male-dominated society as it is a story about an unlikely love affair that lasts a lifetime.
