Barnard's novel is set in postwar Berlin, a city that has been divided by the Wall. Hanna, a young girl from the east, arrives in the city to visit her grandmother. Hanna is quickly drawn into the city's vibrant culture and its many strange characters. She befriends a boy named Fritz who introduces her to the city's underground music scene. Hanna is also fascinated by the city's many strangers, people who live on the other side of the Wall. As Hanna gets to know the city and its people, she begins to question the assumptions that she has been taught about the east and the west. Barnard's novel is an eloquent and moving exploration of the power of belief and the search for meaning in a fractured world.; 8vo; $8.00.
