An australian writer, Anna Funder (Melbourne, 1966) attended the Freie Universität of Berlin. She is the author of Stasiland, winner of the Bbc Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction and published in Italy by Feltrinelli. With great, moving skill, the book brings us back into the memory of the daily condition of a state that no longer exists by listening to the voices of former government officials, informers and people whose life was crushed by absurd and unjustified repression. It is a significant text for the high-quality account, the subtlety of the psychological introspection and the political reflection. Anna Funder was a documentary producer for ABC Australia and a researcher and translator for the Berlin-based German broadcaster Deutsche Welle. In 2012 the publishing house Feltrinelli issued the novel All That I Am in Italian. It is the moving story of four young people who put their lives in jeopardy to alert the world to the dangers of Hitler’s regime.
