    Always wondered whatever happened to Ian Walker Anybody know He s like the Holden Caulfield of divided Berlin Na ve, conflicted, lovelorn, perceptive I read this book shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall and thought, this whole world is disappearing in front of my eyes I had been in Berlin only once, in 1987 Then, after visiting Berlin in 2003 I read this again I felt almost nostalgic If you want to see what life was like in Berlin in the 1980s the music, the clothes, the Cold War Always wondered whatever happened to Ian Walker Anybody know He s like the Holden Caulfield of divided Berlin Na ve, conflicted, lovelorn, perceptive I read this book shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall and thought, this whole world is disappearing in front of my eyes I had been in Berlin only once, in 1987 Then, after visiting Berlin in 2003 I read this again I felt almost nostalgic If you want to see what life was like in Berlin in the 1980s the music, the clothes, the Cold War this book is like a long lost piece of celluloid

    This has to be right up there as one of the must read books about life in West and East Berlin before the fall of the wall.This is no boring, dry historical account of life in the divided city This is a warts n all account of life in 1980s Berlin The author zigzags across the two cities and recounts his experiences in both Clearly, the author is of a Left wing disposition but I don t think that detracts from the book I learned a great deal, I doubt I would have hung around Kreuzberg in the This has to be right up there as one of the must read books about life in West and East Berlin before the fall of the wall.This is no boring, dry historical account of life in the divided city This is a warts n all account of life in 1980s Berlin The author zigzags across the two cities and recounts his experiences in both Clearly, the author is of a Left wing disposition but I don t think that detracts from the book I learned a great deal, I doubt I would have hung around Kreuzberg in the 80s I could have done without some of the story telling of his youth but I guess this is Walker s Odyssey

    unique subject, wonderful writing

    An obscure masterpiece A sort of decadent drunken DeLillo story that ends with headlights in the rain.

    This book has some neat insight into the two Berlins in the 1980s and there are some interesting stories and characters However, the author s own personal leftist politics dominate his highly subjective and biased account of life in Berlin Walker is unfortunately an unrepentant Soviet communist apologist This is quite disturbing to someone like me who had to leave communist Hungary behind to live freely in the United States It should also be disturbing to anyone familiar with the damage and This book has some neat insight into the two Berlins in the 1980s and there are some interesting stories and characters However, the author s own personal leftist politics dominate his highly subjective and biased account of life in Berlin Walker is unfortunately an unrepentant Soviet communist apologist This is quite disturbing to someone like me who had to leave communist Hungary behind to live freely in the United States It should also be disturbing to anyone familiar with the damage and destruction caused by communism throughout the 20th century and beyond Overall, this would have been an enjoyable book if the author s political ideology would not have overshadowed every page I wonder how he enjoyed living in Nicaragua under the Sandinistas in that socialist paradise If nothing else, this book should serve as a warning for anyone who thinks that all that talk about the communist threat from within the West during the Cold War was nonsense

    This book was recommended by Nancy Pearl in one of her books I m traveling to Berlin later this year, so I tracked down a copy I found it grim, not so much from his portrait of West and East Berlin in the early 1980s, but because of his disjointed, disconnected, dissolute life.

    Fantastic Berlin in the 1980s, West and East, with Walker volleying between each.
