Wolf studied German literature at the University of Leipzig and graduated in 1953. Living in East Berlin, she began writing literary criticism as well as fiction and essays. From 1949 to 1989 she was a member of the German Socialist Party and was among those violently opposed to German reunification. Her first novel, DIVIDED HEAVEN, was published in 1963; this and most of her other works are incisive explorations of East German society as it is affected by memories of its Nazi past.
