Zoo Station: Adventures in East and West Berlin by Ian Walker, published in 1988, gives a vivid picture of the fractured city in the period leading up to the fall of the Berlin Wall. There are many novels set during the period of the Cold War and the divided city, but two especially remarkable ones are Ian McEwan’s The Innocent (written before he became a household name) and John le Carré’s The Spy Who Came in from the Cold. The Australian writer and lawyer Anna Funder collected the stories of many East Berliners living during the Cold War.

Sofi Oksanen is Finnish-Estonian, and she sets her novel Purge in Estonia; the book (the first of her writing to appear in English) ranges back and forth in time over the twentieth century and gives us—along with a good story—a solid grounding in the grueling history of Estonia.
