Der Prolog

Entirely too aware that the title of my blog will draw undue comparisons with Isherwood's stories of the same name, I nonetheless begin my tentative foray into the blogosphere. Hopefully I will be just as penetrating and insightful about the people I meet in Berlin as Isherwood was, but mostly I just want this to be a revelation for me about myself : as much as Doris came to know herself in Berlin as per Irmgard Keun's novella "Das kunstseidene Mädchen". For now I'm setting up at home, reading the book they gave us during the pre-departure cultural orientation: "These Strange German Ways, and the Whys of the Ways." Hmm.
