Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 038528117X, Paperback)

CRAZY IN BERLIN is the first novel in the saga of Carlo Reinhart. American literature has produced a number of flawed heroes, but none more memorable than Carlo.

Reinhart is a young army medic, stationed in Germany during the early days of the Allied occupation. Large, generous, kind-hearted, he caretakes a shattered civilization. Wartime stereotypes dissolve in the wash of individuals. All this blood, toil and treasure...for what? Reinhart, who deals daily with psychos, drives himself to the brink with his own questions.

"With this novel, Berger gains a solid place in contemporary fiction." (Saturday Review)

Thomas Berger's debut novel of a young man tumultuously coming of age in postwar Germany Carlo Reinhart, a young American army medic stationed in Germany, confronts a disturbing new world following the end of World War II. Living in Berlin, a city fractured into barricaded sectors by the occupying powers, Reinhart begins to drive himself mad with memories of the evils he has witnessed and questions about how the atrocities took place. When he meets an idealistic Jew named Nathan Schild, Reinhart's turmoil grows more acute. Schild works for both the Americans and the Russians, and he becomes a flashpoint for Reinhart's anguish over the world's vast contradictions. When Schild's escapades lead to a powerful turning point, Reinhart is forced to come to terms with life's ambiguities as well as with his own evolving identity. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Thomas Berger including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.… (more)
