The teleportation accident : a novel by Ned Beauman( Book )
3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in German and held by 9 libraries worldwide
"In the declining Weimar Republic, Egon Loeser works as a stage designer for New Expressionist theatre. His hero is the greatest set designer of the seventeenth century, Adriano Lavicini, who devised the so-called Teleportation Device for the whisking of actors from one scene to another-a miracle, until the thing malfunctioned, causing numerous deaths and perhaps summoning the devil himself. Apolitical in a dangerous time, sex-driven in a dry spell, Loeser leaves the tired scene in Berlin in pursuit of the lubricious Adele Hitler (no relation), who couldn't care less about him. Heading first to Paris and then to Los Angeles, he finds his entire tired Berlin social circle reconstituted in exile, under the patronage of a crime writer and his possibly philandering wife. He also finds himself uncomfortably close to a string of murders at Caltech, where a physicist, assisted by Adele herself, is trying to develop a device for honest-to-God teleportation. Following his breathtaking debut, Boxer, Beetle, Ned Beauman ups the ante, creating in The Teleportation Accident a marvelous mash-up of historical fiction, L.A. noir, science fiction, and satire, and proving himself a star on the rise"--

Absurdistan by Gary Shteyngart( Book )
2 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in German and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"From the critically acclaimed, bestselling author of The Russian Debutante's Handbook comes the uproarious and poignant story of one very fat man and one very small country Meet Misha Vainberg, aka Snack Daddy, a 325-pound disaster of a human being, son of the 1,238th-richest man in Russia, proud holder of a degree in multicultural studies from Accidental College, USA (don't even ask), and patriot of no country save the great City of New York. Poor Misha just wants to live in the South Bronx with his hot Latina girlfriend, but after his gangster father murders an Oklahoma businessman in Russia, all hopes of a U.S. visa are lost. Salvation lies in the tiny, oil-rich nation of Absurdistan, where a crooked consular officer will sell Misha a Belgian passport. But after a civil war breaks out between two competing ethnic groups and a local warlord installs hapless Misha as minister of multicultural affairs, our hero soon finds himself covered in oil, fighting for his life, falling in love, and trying to figure out if a normal life is still possible in the twenty-first century. With the enormous success of The Russian Debutant's Handbook, Gary Shteyngart established himself as a central figure in today's literary world--"one of the most talented and entertaining writers of his generation," according to The New York Observer. In Absurdistan, he delivers an even funnier and wiser literary performance. Misha Vainberg is a hero for the new century, a glimmer of humanity in a world of dashed hopes."--Publisher's website

Während die Teilung Berlins das Stadtbild bis 1989 prägte, wurde die Metropole in den folgenden Jahren in die grösste Baustelle Europas verwandelt. Die Grossprojekte sind nun mehr oder weniger vollendet, und der Potsdamer Platz und das neu entstandene Regierungsviertel bilden einen spannenden Kontrast zur Gründerzeitarchitektur Charlottenburgs und Kreuzbergs. Obwohl sich die Liste der Berliner Baudenkmäler und Sehenswürdigkeiten beliebig erweitern lässt, hat die alte und neue Hauptstadt noch vieles mehr zu bieten: Auf ca. 800 Seiten werden neben Architektur und Kultur auch Lifestyle, Parks, Nachtleben und Cafés und Restaurants dieser ebenso facettenreichen wie aufregenden europäischen Metropole vorgestellt
