Here is more from the description:

Rocking the Wall explores how the epic Bruce Springsteen concert in East Berlin on July 19, 1988, changed the world. Erik Kirschbaum spoke to scores of fans and concert organizers including Jon Landau, Springsteen's long-time manager. With lively behind-the-scenes details from eyewitness accounts, newspaper clippings, and Stasi files, this book takes you to an unforgettable journey with Springsteen through the divided city, to the open air grounds in Weissensee, where The Boss, live on stage, delivered a courageous speech against the Wall to a record-breaking crowd of more than 300,000 delirious young East Germans full of joy and hope.

Coming soon: A Tramp in Berlin. New Mark Twain Stories. The book about Twain's little-known journey to Berlin will be out on July 1, also as a hardcover and a softcover. We had an early introduction of Twain and Tucholsky at the KGB bar on Sunday. Also, our friend Paul Sullivan posted an item about Tucholsky, with the trademark Berlin! Berlin! story:

And there is also Jews in Berlin, the updated edition of 750 years of Jewish history in the German capital up to today, by Andreas Nachama, Julius Schoeps, and Hermann Simon.
