A LEADING GERMAN AUTHOR EXPLORES BERLIN’S TRANSFORMATION IN THE PAST 15 YEARS

At the end of the last millennium, David Wagner visited various Berlin locations and described what he saw – people, businesses, architecture, food, flora, the tempo of life. He then revisited them in 2013 and cast the same attentive eye on the changes that had taken place there. Friedrichstraße in the centre of the city, Schönhauser Allee in the east and Café M in the west all bear the marks of the cultural shifts and development that have altered the city in this era. Alive with detail, Berlin Triptych is a perceptive record of Berlin in the 21st century.

David Wagner has lived in Berlin since 1991. His prize-winning debut My Night-Blue Trousers was published in 2000, and his novel Four Apples was long-listed for the German Book Prize. His best-selling novel, Lives won the 2013 Leipzig Book Fair Prize. He has written extensively about the city of Berlin in collections such as Mauer Park and What Colour Is Berlin.
