It’s Cold and It’s Getting So Dark was written by Carmen-Francesca Banciu and it was translated by Elena Mancini.
Set in Berlin, shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, It’s Cold and It’s Getting So Dark centers around Deborah, a former radio journalist in the GDR who is dying of cancer. Through a somewhat dreamlike dialogue between Deborah and an unnamed younger female friend, we learn about Deborah’s troubled childhood in East Germany, her failed marriage, and her later heartbreak after her female partner leaves her when she is unable to deal with Deborah’s illness.
