Over the last five decades, no other city has changed more than Berlin. Blending memoir, history, anecdote and reportage, this legendary Berliner takes us behind the scenes - from wrenching stories of life under the Stasi, to the difference between East and West Berliners sex-lives, to a present-day investigation of its arts scene, night-life, tumultuous politics and hidden quirks - revealing what makes Berlin the uniquely fascinating place it is. He knows his stuff and shares it beautifully, elegantly, generously and informatively. In Berlin Now, and on the 25th Anniversary of the fall of the Wall, a legendary Berliner tells the inside story of the city. Peter Schneider makes the city come alive. Divided in 1961, reunited in 1989, it has morphed over the last twenty-five years into Europes most vibrant melting-pot of artists, immigrants and entrepreneurs. Pieces of the wall are collected around the world.
