Summary (From the publisher):

A Dutch documentary filmmaker finds himself in Berlin at the end of the twentieth century, trying to make sense of his own past in a city where every stone bears traces of history. Having lost his wife and child in a tragic airplane crash, he is still coming to terms with the loss, trying to build a new life amid a group of cosmopolitan, wonderfully eccentric friends. As he walks the streets of the recently reunified city, shooting scenes for a film with as yet vague shape, Daane seeks to make a coherent picture of fragments of memory and history. When by chance he meets a mysterious young Dutch-Berber woman named Elik, these rather abstract questions suddenly take on far more concrete shape, and soon Daane is following her to Madrid and the novel's stunning denouement.
