Maud Martha von Gwendolyn Brooks – A literary jewel is now available in German – deutsch/englisch
It is a small miracle that this book exists. Seventy years after its first publication in the U.S., Maud Martha has now been published in Germany by the classic publisher Manesse. It is the only novel by author Gwendolyn Brooks. Brooks became famous for her poetry; she was also the first black author to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1950.
