Chloe Aridjis’ (U.S.A.) first novel Book of Clouds is like a tour of Berlin, told with humor and compassion. The book paints an accurate picture of the city and its cafés and packed metros where Hitler appears dressed as an old woman and where you can find a former Gestapo bowling-alley underground. The line between fiction and non-fiction becomes increasingly more vague. An unforgettable novel about a young woman adrift in Berlin where radical meetings can lead to romance and violence.
