The bestselling author Barbara Noack is dead. A corresponding report from the dpa news agency confirmed her publisher Langen Müller to SPIEGEL.
Accordingly, she died on Tuesday in Munich at the age of 98.
Noack was extremely successful with entertainment literature from the 1950s onwards and also provided material for TV hits such as »Der Bastian« with Horst Janson, Lina Carstens and Karin Anselm.
The ZDF series hit the lifestyle of the seventies.
Her second novel, Die Zürcher Verlobung, was filmed in 1957 by Helmut Käutner with Liselotte Pulver, Paul Hubschmid and Bernhard Wicki.
"Heiter is always something frowned upon in Germany," Noack once said self-deprecatingly in an interview with the dpa.
'She was an author of special kindness and friendship.
Barbara Noack will not be forgotten,” said publisher Michael Fleissner.
