Praise For The Wall Jumper: A Berlin Story…
One of the "Top 10 Books about the Berling Wall"
"[The Wall Jumper] might be the best Wall fiction ever written. . . . This is a riveting portrait of a city and a people trapped by mental as well as physical walls."
“An honest, rich book. . . . It is one those rare books that come back at odd moments to intrude on your comfortable conclusions and easy images.”
“[Schneider’s] short, remarkable book is profoundly moving and frequently salted with humor, for which readers will be grateful.”
“Marvelous . . . creates, in very few words, the unreal reality of Berlin.”
“Schneider’s description of the Berlin Wall from both sides . . . is the ultimate depiction of this structure. Nothing more need be said.”
