Format: Paperback
I originally read the book in its original German. It is a fast-paced-thrilling-spy-yarnesque type of a cook book. Numerous good recipes are strewn throughout, and they are nicely tied into the plot and tailored to the circumstances. The plot reads well and is very, very entertaining. Guaranteed to be read in very few sittings.

Format: Paperback
"The Berlin Connection" was one of the titles for the English translation of "Bis zur bitteren Neige". It also appeared in English with the more literal title, "To the Bitter End," but in no case should it be a book about the unwitting secret agent/gourmet cook Thomas Lieven, whose adventures are told in "Es Muss nicht immer Kaviar sein." The two proper English titles for the book about cooking and spying are "The Monte Cristo Cover-up" and again the more literal "It Can't Always Be Caviar." Has a careless publisher put out a book with the wrong title?
Anyway, I'm prejudiced. I think Simmel's the best writer I've ever read, and I taught myself German to be able to read them all. His newest book, "Liebe ist die letzte Brucke," appeared in August, 1999. I am translating it to English as "Love is the Last Bridge."

The Berlin Connection - a title that does live up to the witty and sometimes even cheek-in-tongue nature of this book - will probably always be a bestseller because the moment you start to read you won't stop until you're done... and soon you'll read it again! Placed in the unsteady times of WWII and spiced with Thomas Lieven's recipes it makes interesting reading! Top Book!

I assume (correctly I hope) that the Berlin Connection is J.M. Simmel's first book translated from the Swiss edition titled "Es muss nicht immer Kaviar sein" or "Not always Caviar" published in 1960 in Zurich . If so, it's superb. The plot moves forward at a great pace, and the recipes are wonderful. Very entertaining.
