Memory, including the tricks it plays, is this book's overriding theme. The poems seek to revive happy, confusing, sad and celebratory times over more than half a century, from affairs in distant youth to the credit crunch. They recall friends now beyond known life, misinterpretations giving rise to comedy, epiphanies like a newborn calf or the shock of a painting, and hours dedicated to translation or literary experiments. The book, which also includes translations of some favourite modern poems, tries to come to terms with time itself. --Harry Guest

Comedy and tragedy intertwine in this entertaining account of life in communist East Berlin as seen through the eyes of a teenage boy. Published originally in German, Harry Guest has provided a funny and engaging translation. The story is sprinkled with outlandish characters, from Granma Otti perpetually in search of her next husband, to Fishface Winkler, whose demise at the hands of an unknown assailant scandalizes the square and leads to the search for the perpetrator. At times a mystery, at others a cultural travelogue, A Square in East Berlin reveals the reality of life beyond the Berlin W
