She holds a single rose in front of her body so I will know who she is. We shake hands, not looking too closely at first. It feels like a blind date, because we have described ourselves to each other. I know she has not told her story to a stranger before.’ In 1989 the Berlin Wall fell; shortly afterwards the two Germanies reunited and East Germany ceased to exist. Several years later, in 1996, Anna Funder, working for a TV station in what was formerly West Berlin, met Miriam Weber, who tried to climb over the Wall aged 16 and was caught. Miriam was imprisoned, interrogated and tortured; the Stasi came into her life and never let her go. Format: 25x17x3,5 cm, 264 pages.
