Gunther de Bruyn's short novel Markische Forschungen - set in East Berlin and in the countryside of the Mark Brandenburg in the mid-1970s - portrays the conflict between a village schoolmaster and a pillar of the academic establishment in the German Democratic Republic. What seems at first a simple matter of putting the facts straight turns into a nightmarish confrontation with a man who will stop at nothing to defend his privileges.
