The Quest for Christa T. by Christa Wolf

The Quest for Christa T. (Nachdenken ├╝ber Christa T.) is a 1968 novel by German writer Christa Wolf that follows two childhood friends from the second World War into the 1960s in East Germany. Stylistically it demonstrates a subjectivist experimentation in prose characteristic of GDR literature of the 1960s. According to the 2013 exhibition "David Bowie Is," the novel was one of David Bowie's 100 favourite books.
