Eugen Ruge is the author of In Times of Fading Light (Graywolf Press; translated from the German by Anthea Bell), the portrait of a family set against the backdrop of the collapse of East German communism. It traces the stories of both this particular family and the GDR, while exploring the tragic intertwining of politics, love, and family under the East German regime.
