German writer, one of the most successful women writers of the Federal Republic of Germany. Her novels focus mainly on issues of love, marriage and relationships from a woman's perspective. From 1948 to 1958, she was married to the industrial designer Werner Brückner (1920–1977). From 1967, she lived with her second husband and fellow writer Otto Heinrich Kühner (1921–1996), with whom she collaborated on several works. In 1984, they established the Brückner-Kühner Foundation, which since 1985 has awarded the Kassel Literary Prize for Grotesque Humor. She died on December 21, 1996 in Kassel.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Woher und wohin: Autobiographische Texte" by Christine Brückner (Ullstein, 1995), pp. 11+32: "im Dezember 1921 ... erblickte ich das Licht der Welt; an einem Wintermorgen um 8 Uhr ... Mein Vater schreibt über meine Geburt: >Um fünf Uhr setzten die Wehen ein, um acht Uhr tat das Kind bereits den ersten Schrei.< Keine Klinik, kein Arzt, nur die Hebamme des Dorfes."

Translation: in December 1921 ... I first saw the light of the world on a winter morning at 8 o'clock ... My father wrote of my birth: "At five o'clock labor began, at eight o'clock the child let out the first cry." No hospital, no doctor, only the midwife of the village.
