Lax Friend and Biographer Sigrid Hauff Has Died at 77

German author and scholar Sigrid Hauff, who wrote an early biography of Robert Lax, died December 5, 2018, after what her family called “a short but severe illness.” She was 77.

Hauff and her husband Hartmut Geerken visited Lax on the Greek island of Patmos, developed several radio shows (in German) about him and invited him to give readings in Germany. Between them, they introduced Lax to thousands of listeners and readers in Germany and Austria.

In 1999, Hauff released A Line in Three Circles: The Inner Biography of Robert Lax, which included a comprehensive bibliography of his published and produced works. It was published in German and in an English translation available on Amazon.
