    Description
    A Journey Down Germany's Divide

    This is a revealing portrait of the reunified Germany told in the form of an entertaining travelogue - an 800-mile journey along the former Iron Curtain from the Baltic Sea to the Czech border. When the Iron Curtain dissolved, the faultline that divided West and Easy Germany also collapsed. But could the so-called "death strip" be erased as easily as a pencil-mark on the map?

    In his encounters with former border guards, ex-Stasi members turned insurance salesmen, decollectivised farmers, innkeepers, nudists, car mechanics, foresters and artists, the author reveals with a delightful lightness of touch the hopes, fears and regrets of both "Wessis" and "Ossis", and listens to the anxieties of those who feel "colonised" by the West.
