Erik Neutsch was married twice. His first marriage ended, after nearly fifty years, when his wife died. Her final five days were seen as the basis of one of his final pieces of substantive published work, "Verdämmerung" (2003), although much of the text is written in the third person.


In the 1970s Neutsch started to write what he intended as his greatest work, the six novel cycle "Peace in The East" ("Der Friede im Osten"), in which the history of East Germany is depicted with suitably epic breadth. In the end Neutsch wrote only five the intended six novels, and the fifth remained incomplete. The author had planned a sixth volume entitled "Years of the Quiet Sun" ("Jahre der ruhigen Sonne"), but after the political changes of 1990 he was no longer able to write it.


He was a writer and actor, known for Spur der Steine (1966), Geschichten jener Nacht (1967) and Auf der Suche nach Gatt (1976). He was married to Annelies Hinz and Helga Franke.


Neutsch's output included novels, short stories, children's books, essays, poems and screen-plays. His writings dealt with societal problems in the real-life socialist East Germany, while remaining faithful to the party line. His greatest success came with the 900-page novel "Spur der Steine" ("Trace of stones" 1964). Its central theme is developments in the life of an initially rebellious construction worker who, by the end of the book, has become a well attuned conformist member of the socialist society. Nearly half a million copies of the novel were produced, which involved 35 editions of which five came out after 1990. This made it one of the most successful pieces of East German literature. A (much simplified) film version directed by Frank Beyer appeared in 1966, but it was withdrawn only three days after its first Berlin showing, following criticism from some party officials that its portrayal of The Party was insufficiently positive. It was only shortly before the wall came down in 1989 that "Trace of Stones" returned to East German cinemas.


After 1960 Neutsch worked both as a journalist and as a writer of books. In 1963 he became a member of the SED regional leadership team, and in 1970/71 he spent a year as a volunteer Political commissar with the National People's Army.


Between 1950 and 1953 he studied social sciences and journalism at Leipzig University, graduating with a higher diploma in Journalism. After this he worked till 1960 in Halle, as part of the Culture and Economics editorial team with Die Freiheit, at the time a newspaper of the country's governing SED (party).


Erik Neutsch came from a working family. After successfully completing his high school career he joined, in 1949, the ruling East German Socialist Unity Party (SED / Sozialistische Einheitspartei Deutschlands) as well as the Free German Youth (FDJ / Freie Deutsche Jugend) movement.
