Set shortly after the fall of the Wall in a newly reunited Berlin, Jeffrey Lewis’ extraordinary new novel, Berlin Cantata deploys thirteen voices to tell a story not only of atonment, but of discovery, loss identity, intrigue, mystery, insanity, sadomasochism and lies. At its center is a country house owned successively by Jews, Nazis, and Communists. In the country house, the American girl seeks her hidden past. In the girl, a local reporter seeks redemption. In the reporter, a false hero of the past seeks exposure. In the false hero the American girl seeks a guide. And so it goes, a round of conspiracy and desire.
