Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Dear friends, colleagues, authors, editors, and readers! Berlinica Publishing wishes you all a very merry Christmas and a wonderful and successful New Year!

Berlinica will be introducing four new books in 2014; beginning with Rheinsberg, a love story by Kurt Tucholsky, one of the most famous authors of the Weimar Republic. This will be the first time Rheinsberg comes out in English. It is our second Tucholsky-book, after Berlin! Berlin! Dispatches from the Weimar Republic, which appeared in 2013. Also in the 2014 program is Rennefarre. Dott's Wonderful Travels and Adventures, a famous German children classic by the late Tamara Ramsay, translated by Malve von Hassell. The book will come out as a hardcover.

Erik Kirschbaum, the author of Rocking the Wall. Bruce Springsteen: The Berlin Concert That Changed the World, will be doing another book with Berlinica; it is about German-Americans in World War I. And we will also publish a book with black-and-white pictures from 1945s Berlin, taken by Russian soldiers and shown for the first time in the United States. 

And finally, for everybody who is still looking for a Christmas gift, we recommend Lothar Heinke's book  Wings of Desire - Angels of Berlin

Own a Piece of The Berlin Wall

What happened to the Berlin Wall? It has been pecked, dismantled, torn down, chopped into little pieces, and now you can buy those. Not only a real piece of the real Wall, no, a piece of the real Wall inserted into a postcard of Bruce Springsteen, singing in 1988 in the East Berlin district of Weissensee, in front of more than 300,000 delirious young Germans. It was an event that started the revolution that eventually brought down the Berlin Wall, a little more than a year later. Berlinica has a limited—a very limited—edition of those postcards, sold by Amazon, an amazing deal for $6 only.

So, if you are a big Springsteen fan, that is the Christmas gift to go with. And if you are interested in how Bruce brought down the Wall, Rocking the Wall, by Berlin-based Reuters correspondent Erik Kirschbaum, is the book to read. It is available as a hardcover, a softcover, and an enhanced ebook, with links to Springsteen music and pictures of the concert.
