Maron's Flugasche : female identity, the world of work and the environment in the GDR of the late seventies. Monika Maron's first novel Flugasche has to be seen in the context of the change in government in the GDR (Ulbricht-Honecker) in 1971. Monika Maron invents a new genealogy for the protagonist of her novel, Josefa Nadler, derived from her maternal family, especially her "mad" Jewish grandfather, which she uses for her own unconventinal female identity construction. In this way she is able to flee from the boring world of social norms into a world of dreams and fantasies. As an adult she comes into conflict both with the prevailing gender stereotypes and the prescriptions about the way she is supposed to write her report on the town of B. Like Maron, Josefa ultimately rejects the self-censorship required of public speech.
