"There's a great sense of humour, a true gift." - "Hard to put down; a nicely constructed read with a good tempo." - "Wild Years in West Berlin will make you wish you had been there!" (Reviews on Amazon) We are in a squatted house in the early 80s. Every day is a battle against the elements. Sometimes it's the cops looking for drugs, sometimes it's a bunch of skinheads smashing windows, or it's Frau Steinmoller again, the lovely neighbor from across the street. Fortunately, the squatters always manage to outsmart their enemies. Only "special needs" Heiner is a tough nut to crack since he just won't let go. Adding to the supreme madness: The trials and tribulations of our brave squatters happen on a "capitalist island" - surrounded by a booby-trapped wall and an absurd communist regime.
