Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin
This might be the best book that German Republic produced within the last 54 years (1959 was a very good year for Lafite-Rothschild and Günter Grass:).
It is gripping, it is different and there is something wonderfully unreal about it. It is a book of 50 remote islands that Judith Schalansky, a Berlin writer, has never visited and never will. Or so she thinks. If she keeps writing that good, soon she´ll be able to afford flying to any or all of them.
