Berliner weighs in at just over 50,000 words.


Central to the book is the idea that the characters are actors, acting in plays performed on stage. Plays are what the fiction centers on. It explains the characters and their involvement in the prose chapters that split the narrative into timelines, Berlin before the fall of the Wall (1980s), and Berlin post-German reunification (1990s). In the former timeline the character Henry, only half in jest, changes his name to Mustapha Mond.

Thirteen years later, in the future timeline, Henry’s friend Anthony resumes. He lives with his girlfriend in an apartment near the university where he teaches English translation lessons to his German students.

”You all remember, I suppose, that beautiful and inspired saying of Our Ford’s: History is bunk.” Mustapha Mond (speaker), Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley, published in 1932.

Greek Myths

(Anthony’s hobby.) A theme is Greek mythology.

Many people believe that Greek myths are a product of prehistory. Indeed, modern translation of Linear B, a syllabic script employed by Mycenean scribes who wrote on clay tablets, reveals a close kinship to mythology encapsulated in Mycenean official titles, place names and personal names.

A translation of a set of tablets discovered in Pylos at the “Palace of Nestor” is included as a supplement in the book.
