Spannend, ungewöhnlich und überraschend: Ein neues Puzzlestück im Gereon-Rath-Universum und die perfekte Einstiegsdroge für all jene, die die Kutscher-Krimis noch vor sich haben – mit Illustrationen von Kat Menschik! Wen fasziniert sie nicht? Charly Ritter, die große Liebe von Kriminalkommissar Gereon Rath, die ihren eigenen Kopf hat, so charmant wie neugierig ist und ein Geheimnis in sich zu tragen scheint. In Moabit lernen wir Charly kennen, als sie noch Lotte heißt und bei ihren Eltern wohnt, in einer Beamtenwohnung am Zellengefängnis Moabit. Gerade hat sie das Abitur im Kleistlyzeum geschafft, und dies, obwohl sie aus einfachen Verhältnissen stammt. Ihre frisch errungene Freiheit genießt Lotte vor allem nachts, bei heimlichen Eskapaden mit ihrer Freundin Greta durch die Tanzlokale Berlins. Tagsüber lernt sie Schreibmaschine und Stenografie, denn eins ist klar: Ihr Studium wird sie sich selbst finanzieren müssen. Charlottes Vater ist Gefängniswärter – ein einfacher, ehrlicher Mann. Doch seine Ansprüche an seinen Augenstern Lotte in puncto Bildung, Ehre und Anstand sind hoch. Und Lotte ist ein Vaterkind. Kein Wunder, dass es nicht spurlos an ihr vorübergeht, als ihr Vater eines Tages in ein brutales Attentat im Moabiter Gefängnis verwickelt wird. Ein Vorfall, der Charlottes weiteres Leben prägt und der aus Lotte letzten Endes Charly macht. Kat Menschik entwirft dazu so kongenial das verruchte Berlin der 20er-Jahre in seiner düster-rauen Schönheit, dass man selbst noch den Geruch und die Geräusche von damals wahrzunehmen meint.

Franz Hessel (1880--1941), a German-born writer, grew up in Berlin, studied in Munich, and then lived in Paris, where he moved in artistic and literary circles. His relationship with the fashion journalist Helen Grund was the inspiration for Henri-Pierre Roche's novel Jules et Jim (made into a celebrated 1962 film by Francois Truffaut). In collaboration with Walter Benjamin, Hessel reinvented the Parisian figure of the flaneur. This 1929 book -- here in its first English translation -- offers Hessel's version of a flaneur in Berlin. In Walking in Berlin, Hessel captures the rhythm of Weimar-era Berlin, recording the seismic shifts in German culture. Nearly all of the essays take the form of a walk or outing, focusing on either a theme or part of the city, and many end at a theater, cinema, or club. Hessel deftly weaves the past with the present, walking through the city's history as well as its neighborhoods. Even today, his walks in the city, from the Alexanderplatz to Kreuzberg, can guide would-be flaneurs.Walking in Berlin is a lost classic, known mainly because of Hessel's connection to Benjamin but now introduced to readers of English. Walking in Berlin was a central model for Benjamin's Arcades Project and remains a classic of "walking literature" that ranges from Surrealist perambulation to Situationist "psychogeography." This MIT Press edition includes the complete text in translation as well as Benjamin's essay on Walking in Berlin, originally written as a review of the book's original edition."An absolutely epic book, a walking remembrance." -- Walter Benjamin
