|In 2002, on his 50th birthday,
Martin Duffy celebrated the beginning of a new life. Having lived
in Dublin all his life up to then (excepting a year in Manhattan and
several months in the UK making films), he pulled up his roots for good
to submit himself to a new city. Berlin, one of the great
capitals of Europe, was where he had found love.
Berlin is a city reinvented many times, just as Martin was reinventing himself.
Martins latest book, Berlin Love Story, is the document of this tremendous change in his life, discovering on his path a new kind of urbanity, coming to grips with a new extended family, not to mention overcoming a new language.
Besides being a heartwarming and often comical personal account, Berlin Love Story is an excellent modern guide to this ever-changing city at the center of Europe's consciousness, containing relevant directions, recommendations and savvy advice for anyone wishing to either relocate there or learn more about the city through a foreigners experiences.
The book was completed in early 2004 and is now considering publishing offers. If you are a publisher interested in seeing the full manuscript, email [email protected]
