by Bea Setton


The fresh, wry, piercingly contemporary debut about a young woman who moves to Berlin to escape her demons - and what she finds there. For fans of My Year of Rest and Relaxation and Exciting Times.

In the grip of existential malaise, 25 year-old Daphne moves to Berlin and rents a flat in fashionable Kreuzberg. She attends language lessons, joins a running group, and eats absurd amounts of ice cream and M&Ms.

When a series of mysterious and troubling events explodes into her life - beginning with a brick hurled through her bedroom window in the dead of night - it becomes clear that Daphne hasn't left all her problems at home.

As dark and surprising as it is funny and wise, BERLIN introduces a delightfully unreliable narrator and a thrilling new literary talent, channelling the modern female experience with great wit and startling originality.
