Die Stadt gibt es so nicht mehr: ein zerstrittenes Paar, durch eine Mauer hermetisch in Ost und West getrennt, ein Menetekel, ein gespaltener, Moloch, aus dem die Geschichte für eine Weile verabschiedet zu haben scheint. Im Schatten der berüchtigen Trennmauer aber reproduziert sich zwanghaft das Motiv von Paarung und Trennung. "Am seltsamsten war, daß die Bewohner ihren Mauertick nicht zu bemerken schienen. Als führten sie mit ihrem rastlosen Teilen und Trennen ein Muster aus, das in ihre Seele eingeprägt war." Auch in der Liebe wütet ein Trennungsvirus, und niemand scheint dagegen gefeit. Drei Freunde, Stammgäste einer der unzähligen Stammkneipen im Zentrum der westlichen Halbstadt, tauschen ihre Erfahrungen aus. Eduard, Biochemiker, lebt in getrennten Wohnungen und scheinbar stabiler Beziehung mit Klara, bis ihn eines Tages Zweifel an seiner Liebesfähigkeit befallen. Theo, Schriftsteller und offizieller "Mauerspringer" von "drüben", nutzt seinen Doppelpaß zu bequemen Fluchten und Ausfluchten, bevor die Stasi seiner hinhaltenden Beziehung zu Pauline ein Ende setzt. André, international gefragter Komponist, stürzt sich, Rettung aus dem eigenen Beziehungschaos suchend, in eine Ehe, die die Hochzeit nicht übersteht

Konrad, who has become a reputed Astrophysicist, tries to take advantage of scientific congresses outside Eastern Germany to arrange encounters with Sophie. But in a country where the political police, the Stasi, monitors the moves of all suspicious people (such as Konrad's sister Barbara and her husband Harald), preserving one's privacy, ideals and self-respect becomes an exhausting fight, even as the Eastern block begins its long process of disintegration

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A "longtime Berliner's ... exploration of the heterogeneous allure of this vibrant city. Delving beneath the obvious answers--Berlin's club scene, bolstered by the lack of a mandatory closing time; the artistic communities that thrive due to the relatively low (for now) cost of living--Schneider takes us on an insider's tour of this rapidly metamorphosing metropolis, where high-class soirees are held at construction sites and enterprising individuals often accomplish more without public funding--assembling a makeshift club on the banks of the Spree River--than Berlin's officials do"--Provided by publisher
