9780099449232: Berlin Blues

It's 1989 and, whenever he isn't hanging out in the local bars, Herr Lehmann lives entirely free of responsibility in the bohemian Berlin district of Kreuzberg. Through years of judicious sidestepping and heroic indolence, this barman has successfully avoided the demands of parents, landlords, neighbours and women. But suddenly one unforeseen incident after another seems to threaten his idyllic and rather peaceable existence. He has an encounter with a decidedly unfriendly dog, his parents threaten to descend on Berlin from the provinces, and he meets a dangerously attractive woman who throws his emotional life into confusion.

Berlin Blues is a richly entertaining evocation of life in the city and a classic of modern-day decadence.

Review:

"Regener has captured absolutely the lifestyles and conversations of a group of pre-fall-of-the-Wall Berlin friends" ( Time Out)

"Full of Kafkaesque absurdity, Berlin Blues is as wilfully detached, witty, endearing and deadpan comic as its loafer protagonist" ( Big Issue)

"Regener captures note-perfectly the disengagement of a German generation that came of age between the crushing of the Baader-Meinhof underground and the demolition of the Wall" ( Evening Standard)

Book Description:

A brilliant, hilarious, tragicomic novel of life in the bars of Berlin.
