Summary
Lena is a married, chronically infidelitous Berlin-based European writer, devoted only to gratifying her ambitions and hard-driving libido. Nathan is a footloose womanizing American author, unable to produce the big novel for which he's been contracted. When both writers meet in the Alps, they fall into a mad kind of addictive love, chasing each other selfishly, sexually and even digitally across Europe and America, turning their affair into a high-stakes reckless game of jealousy, rivalling ambitions, gender conflict, political combat and artistic outrage. But beneath it all, their hearts are breaking, dark secrets haunt their pasts, while overshadowing their love is a fast-changing, ruthless world in which not only is The Holocaust denied or forgotten but across the social and political spectrum a new kind of totalitarianism - spearheaded by a new breed of "strongmen" leaders - threatens to sweep Lena, Nathan, and all of humanity, to the very brink of annihilation. Fast-paced, written in contagious gonzo style, and with leading characters whose wild bohemian lives make for binge-worthy compulsive reading, The Berlin Woman is a new kind of no-holds barred love story written by Alan Kaufman, an author known for his storytelling power and who's been not only praised by everyone from Dave Eggers, Etgar Keret and Sapphire to David Mamet, Hubert Selby Jr. and Thane Rosenbaum but has been compared by critics to such prose masters as Henry Miller, I.B. Singer and Jack Kerouac
