A tragicomic satire from the heart of East Germany

Loved this lyrically written and beautifully translated tragi-comic satire narrated by a young homeless woman in former East Germany. She starts life in an affluent middle class home but as Germany moves towards reunification her situation becomes more and more desperate. The story is told with compassion and humour but the stark reality is ever present. A great read.
