Summary (From the publisher):

Eduard, a German scientist and child of postwar Berlin, has long been settled in California with his American wife and three children when he discovers that he's inherited an apartment building in the former East Berlin. Lured by the property and a promising new job offer, he returns to his native city.

He finds post-Communist Berlin an unfamiliar and baffling landscape where everything starts to go wrong. His property is occupied by malevolent squatters, and it will cost him a fortune to repossess it. He is becoming increasingly estranged from his wife, who balks at resettling in Germany. Convinced that her distaste for Berlin is really a rejection of Eduard himself, the neurotic hero launches a series of desperate stunts to win her back and make a new home for himself.
