For the last 150 years, Berlin has been a city of myth, dreams and possibility. For Erich, it has been home for over two decades. Yet even after two failed marriages and a stuttering career as a artist, he has little to show for it: a pair of dysfunctional children, an agoraphobic girlfriend who believes she is Marlene Dietrich and a worthy but unprofitable cafe gallery. With the arrival of his younger brother Max, recovering from a suicide attempt, everything changes. Max has always been the golden one for whom success came easily and yet who never cared. Erich's problem is that he always cared too much. The brothers are at a crossroads, both emotionally and geographically. It is only together that they can claw their way back to life, perhaps through the life and times of Europe's most gilded city . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
"'Filled with echoes and resonance, intelligence and insight, Bailey's story unfolds the complex, touching failure of brotherly love with a refreshing lack of sentimentality or pretension...A compelling, blackly comic drama of family implosion'" * The Times *
"'It is a pleasure to read a writer who makes writing so effortless...There are not many writers who can take as their central theme the Meaning of Life and come up smelling of roses'" * Guardian *
"'A beautifully written tale of how people create a city and how cities create people. Bailey has crafted a homage to a city that has clearly got under her skin, to produce one that gets under ours too'" * Independent on Sunday *
