Reading period: 14th March – 24th April 2011

The three acclaimed books in our spring 2011 German reading group are three very different but delightful explorations of cities – one follows an irresistible elderly walker who refuses to become a passive resident in his old people’s home, another follows a man intent on recalling the life and love he has lost and,  finally, one which persues Grell, lost in Berlin.

Extracts in English are being added to this website where possible – see the relevant author’s page. Copies of the books in the original German are available to borrow from And Other Stories by emailing

Read the excerpts or books and tell us your opinion! You can comment online on the author pages, or come to a meet-up to discuss what has been read.
