This book rocked. I was constantly drawn in by the plot and reality twists. Plus it follows along with my latest fiction topic- Germany and Eastern Europe pre- and post- WWII. Dig it, want to read more by this author.

This is an intelligent book, funny and insane, twisted, hallucinogenic, a trip in and out of lucidity. What is real, what is unreal? What is the future, what is now? Take the trip now!

Thoughtful and very readable story about professor's bizarre trip to Berlin and mysterious escaped mental patient. Fun and fascinating, especially the late eighties setting.
