My friend who lives in Berlin told me that Christiane F is now a drug addict again.Thank you so much for the recommendations, I'll write them down and check them out when I next go there. It would have been really great to meet you in person (and it will happen because I'm sort of planning on going to Oslo in spring). But for now, we're going to Stockholm, simply because we've probably got a place to stay at and it's obviously quite in-your-face charming!
i remember reading the book in school, and also seeing the film. it's obligatory in german schools, the book, or at least i think it is. some of the pictures kind of burned themselves into the memory.
