Description
 

In 1989, the Berlin Wall fell; shortly afterwards the two Germanies reunited, and East Germany ceased to exist. In a country where the headquarters of the secret police can become a museum literally overnight and one in 50 East Germans were informing on their fellow citizens, there are thousands of captivating stories. Anna Funder tells extraordinary tales from the underbelly of the former East Germany. She meets Miriam, who as a 16-year-old might have started World War III; she visits the man who painted the line which became the Berlin Wall; and she gets drunk with the legendary Mik Jegger of the east, once declared by the authorities to his face to no longer to exist. Each enthralling story depicts what its like to live in Berlin as the city knits itself back together--or fails to. This is a history full of emotion, attitude, and complexity.
