Berlin, 1922. Pandemonium reigns in the capital of Germany after the Allied victory in World War I and the fall of Kaiser Wilheim II. The proletariat have swarmed out of their gutters, waving red banners of communism; private armies of unemployed, disaffected veterans - Freikorps - roam the streets thrashing the communist mobs. An explosion of radical music, theatre, and art manifests the seething rancour and nervous energy of the people. The most insane, paralyzing inflation the world has known makes life a misery for the hungry, desperate populace. This is the stunning backdrop of A Princess in Berlin, a rich social novel in the grand tradition, at its heart a compelling love story.
