In 1989, the Berlin Wall fell; shortly afterward the two Germanys reunited, and East Germany ceased to exist.

Anna Funders bestselling Stasiland brings us extraordinary tales of real lives in the former East Germany.

She meets Miriam, who tried to escape to West Berlin as a sixteen-year-old; hears the heartbreaking story of Frau Paul, who was separated from her baby by the Berlin Wall; and gets drunk with the legendary Mik Jegger of the East, once declared by the authoritiesto his faceno longer to exist. And she meets the Stasi men themselves, still proud of their surveillance methods.

Funders powerful account of that brutal world has become a contemporary classic.
