A Guide to Berlin, Paperback Book

A Guide to Berlin Paperback



LONGLISTED FOR THE 2016 STELLA PRIZEWe travel to find ourselves; to run away from ourselves. `A Guide to Berlin' is the name of a short story written by Vladimir Nabokov in 1925, when he was a young man of 26, living in Berlin. A group of six international travellers, two Italians, two Japanese, an American and an Australian, meet in empty apartments in Berlin to share stories and memories.

Each is enthralled in some way by the work of Vladimir Nabokov, and each is finding their way in deep winter in a haunted city.

A moment of devastating violence shatters the group, and changes the direction of everyone's story. Brave and brilliant, A Guide to Berlin traces the strength and fragility of our connections through biographies and secrets.
