Among Schneiders works translated to English are "The Wall Jumper," and his latest novel, "Eduards Homecoming." His novels have played an influential role both within Germany and abroad in naming and exploring the extraordinary issues, sometimes poignant, sometimes humorous, which arose with the fall of the Berlin Wall. As a journalist, he has published numerous articles and essays in Der Spiegel, the New York Times, New York Times Magazine, New Republic, Newsweek, Time and Le Monde, among others. He also has written several screenplays, and his short story, "Vati" ("Grandpa"), is currently being filmed, starring Charlton Heston.
