WoodsNobodaddys Children is a trilogy of novels that traces life in Germany from the Nazi era through the postwar years and into an apocalyptic future. Scenes from the Life of a Faun recounts the dreary life of a government worker who escapes the banality of war by researching the exploits of a deserter from the Napoleonic Wars nicknamed The Faun. Brands Heath deals with the chaos of the immediate postwar period as a writer joins a small community of survivors to try to forge a new life, and Dark Mirrors is set in a future where civilization has been virtually destroyed. Dark Mirrors narrator fears he may be the last man on earth until the discovery of another creates new fears. All three novels are characterized by Schmidts unique combination of sharply observed details, sarcastic asides, and wide erudition.
