It's a non-fiction book but is highly readable as it is written as a kind of story.
'A gripping account of a city's search for identity under the unexpected burden of freedom' is one review.
The book was gripping from the beginning, an intriguing look into the lives of people who lived behind the Berlin Wall.
Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive.
