Background for love

Helen Wolff

£16.99

Available on back-order

‘Background for Love’ is an autobiographical novel by the great publisher Helen Wolff, who together with her husband, Kurt Wolff, set up Pantheon Books in America after fleeing Nazi Germany. In the fascinating companion essay, historian Marion Detjen, the author’s great-niece, delves into Helen’s path to writing and the autobiographical context of the novel in her early life with Kurt. Recently recovered from the archive and translated for the first time by the author’s grandson, Tristram Wolff, this is a lushly atmospheric, irresistible novel of passion and self-discovery.
