    • Hans Fallada is becoming one o my favourite authors.  Haven't read that one though. On the list.

    • I must also admit to not realising how "big a deal" it was for Hazel to step up and keep the forum going. Sorry for not appreciating how hard that must have been Hazel.
    • There may be a hread about some of the books in this series but I failed to find any. David Downing has written seven books featuring John Russell and Effi Koenen. Zoo Station, Silesian Station, Stetting Station, Potsdam Station, Lehrter Station, Masaryk Station and a prequel Wedding Station. The series starts in Berlin the days leading up to WWII and continues through the war up to the Berlin blockade. John is an English journalist with a German ex-wife and son.  Effi is a German actress.  The stories tell of the compromises and sacrifices the two have to make (together and separately) to survive Nazi Germany, the war and post war intrigues with Soviet and American intelligence services. I have now read the whole series three or four times.  It is easy reading but immensely enjoyable.
