Written and updated over the course of several decades, an eyewitness account of the pivotal events of 1989 gives way to a perceptive appreciation of its difficult passage to reunification. Nootebooms writings on politics, people, architecture and culture are as digressive as they are eloquent- his innate curiosity takes him through the landscapes of Heine and Goethe, steeped in Romanticism and mythology, and to Germanys baroque cities. With an outsiders objectivity he has crafted an intimate portrait of the country to its present day.
