TMBTP out in paperback!

from Paperback Row in The New York Times Sunday Book Review:
"THIS MUST BE THE PLACE, by Anna Winger (Riverhead, $16.) A woman (a young teacher with a personal tragedy who has followed her workaholic husband to Berlin), a man (her neighbor, a washed-up German actor) and Berlin itself (which “moved forward with a lack of vanity that she found relaxing”) are the main characters in this smart first novel."

New York Times Book Review

"Stealthily original...In This Must Be the Place, Winger avoids the braggadocio of typical expatriate fiction, telling a story rooted in universal human emotions - love, loneliness, grief, fear of change and, yes, hope - among people whose identity is more complicated than their citizenship."

It is a rare and wonderful experience to be understood. To read the rest of this fantastic review, please click here.

The gorgeous illustration of Sally Bowles hugging the Berlin Bear that accompanied the review is by Monika Aichele.
