Through the Leaves & The Nest & Mensch Meier

Through the Leaves & The Nest & Mensch Meier $24.99

Frank Xaver Kroetz

Published by Nick Hern Books

'The most fascinating of contemporary West German playwrights. Through the Leaves sticks like a splinter in the mind.' Frank Rich, New York Times. Frank Xaver Kroetz' unsparing portraits of life in Germany's lower middle-class redefine the notion of realism on the stage. The only Kroetz collection available in English, this volume includes: Through the Leaves, about a female butcher and her labourer lover; The Nest, about a worker who inadvertently poisons a lake and, consequently, injures his infant son; and Mensch Meier, about a jittery, imaginative, Munich assembly-line worker, his vague housebound wife and their silently observant teenage son
