This profoundly moving and imaginative novel takes readers on an intricate journey ending in the fall of the Berlin Wall. “The book’s non-linear format, heavy use of symbolism and dissection of complex philosophical concepts demands a certain sophistication from readers; those well-versed in the events of 20th-century Germany will most greatly appreciate this intricate, thought-provoking investigation of personal and political history.”-Publishers Weekly
