Hein, Christoph (Author)
Christoph Hein (born 8 April 1944): As a poet, playwright, essayist, and novelist, Christoph Hein is considered one of the most important and respected literary voices in Germany today. Widely acclaimed in Germany and abroad, Hein's works have been translated into 17 languages. The Tango Player, Hein's second novel to appear in English, was acclaimed as an ingenious and provocative novel by the Times Literary Supplement.
