Our 10 Christmas Gifts* for Bookworms 2017

1st Vienna Street by Sven Regener


What’s it about?

Sven Regener’s Lehmann trilogy and the films made from it have long been cult. In Wiener Straße Regener now returns to his popular character for a fifth time, although this time he is not so much at the center. Wiener Straße is set in 1980, when Frank Lehmann is just new in Berlin, and follows less of a linear plot but presents a highly enjoyable jumble of Kreuzberg creatives, squatters, punks and action artists. It is full of witty dialogues, is one celebration of old West Berlin and the people who lived in it!

For whom is the book ideal?

Of course, all fans of Mr. Lehmann, but also for Regener newcomers and anyone who would like to take a trip back in time to the West Berlin of the 80s and learn more about the attitude to life at that time.

2. Times of Awakening by Carmen Korn

What’s it about?

In the second part of her so-called Century Trilogy, Carmen Korn depicts the German post-war period and the economic miracle through the eyes of four very different friends Henny, Käthe, Ida and Lina, who were already the protagonists in Daughters of a New Erat.
Sensitive and stirring, the book describes the difficulties, hopes and fears of this time and tells not least of how important friendship is in hard times.

For whom is the book ideal?

Although the book is the 2nd part of a trilogy, you do not need to have read the first volume before. Times of departure is suitable for all readers who love stories about women’s fates and about indestructible friendship.
