Stasiland: Stories from Behind the Berlin Wall

Published in , it won awards, was praised by J. Coetzee, Claire Tomalin, Tom Hanks and critics worldwide, and is on school and university reading lists. Now there's a beautiful new edition from The Folio Society in London, which publishes illustrated hardcover versions of old and modern classics. A lovely touch a surprise even to Funder is that the book comes in an optimistic yellow case. The Australian author's doggedly researched and vividly told stories about ordinary people who lived under the boot of the Stasi are accompanied by her snapshots of people and grim places, taken at the time for her own records.

The Australian Anna Funder was working in television in Berlin in the mids when she became interested in the Stasi - the former East German ministry of state security. She wanted to know if East Germans had been capable of individual acts of resistance but the notion was brusquely dismissed by her West German colleagues: "Ossis" were not brave, but craven - and stupid to put up with the regime. Funder decided to find out for herself. By placing an advertisement in a newspaper she arranged meetings with a number of old Stasi-men, including the noble renegade Karl-Eduard von Schnitzler, who once hosted a notorious television programmerunning down the west. She found them living in the same drab houses in compounds on the outskirts of Potsdam; the same stained Plattenbauten - or high rise blocks - in East Berlin; and frequenting the same pubs they did in their glory days.
