German author Brigitte Kronauer, who was granted the Georg Buechner abstract prize in 2005 has passed on at 78 years old, her publisher said on Tuesday.
The Klett Cotta distributing house said Kronauer had kicked the bucket after a significant lot of serious sickness and alluded to her as “an exceedingly regarded creator, who has left an enduring imprint on her distributer.”
Conceived in 1940 in Essen, Kronauer is known for works, including “Frau Muehlenbeck im Gehaeus,” “Teufelsbrueck” and “Der Scheik von Aachen.”
Most of her works were not converted into English.
Granted yearly, the Georg Buechner Prize is the most significant abstract prize on German-language works.
