Rate this:
Thomas Berger's debut novel of a young man tumultuously coming of age in postwar Germany Carlo Reinhart, a young American army medic stationed in Germany, confronts a disturbing new world following the end of World War II. Living in Berlin, a city fractured into barricaded sectors by the occupying powers, Reinhart begins to drive himself mad with memories of the evils he has witnessed and questions about how the atrocities took place. When he meets an idealistic Jew named Nathan Schild, Reinhart's turmoil grows more acute. Schild works for both the Americans and the Russians, and he becomes a flashpoint for Reinhart's anguish over the world's vast contradictions. When Schild's escapades lead to a powerful turning point, Reinhart is forced to come to terms with life's ambiguities as well as with his own evolving identity. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Thomas Berger including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
