Writer and journalist Stuart Braun reads from his debut book, “City of Exiles”: Berlin Writer and journalist Stuart Braun reads from his debut book, “City of Exiles: Berlin from the outside in”m the outside

” … an uncompromising attempt to capture the spirit of the place, the city emerging like a constantly evolving Berliner cabaret that makes you want to go there and see for yourself.” The Age

“Stuart Braun has produced a powerful piece of work which tells us things most of us did not know about Berlin and its shifting population of exiles. More than that, however, he raises important questions concerning the influence of place on the human psyche and the nature of belonging.” Minor Literature[s]

 “the complexities of the city are evoked … the city-on-the page becomes what Braun believes it is: welcoming and liberating.”            Australian Book Review


“Essential reading … Everybody’s in here, from the Expressionists of the 1920s to the Geniale Dilletanten of the 1980s, Rosa-Luxemburg’s pre-WWI Spartacists and the RAF to the American transvestites of the 1970s and the gang of digital exiles allied with Edward Snowden …” Exberliner
