ABSTRACT
This essay discusses various issues related to the literary culture in the city of Berlin, Germany, in the year of 2000. The expectation that Berlin should produce "big-city" novels that would catch the encounters, juxtapositions, and historical layering of the newly reunified capital is perhaps unfair, but it reflects widespread interest in literary representations of this brazenly, even insolently transformed city. Since 1999, there has been a star quality to young thirty-something novelists such as Karen Duve, Judith Hermann, and Thomas Brussig. There is a shelf of recent books that directly take the measure of the new Berlin and its sights and sounds and especially its trash, a good start even if Frank Schirrmacher, the literary editor of the periodical Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung famously misses the representative Hauptstadtroman, the novel of the new capital city.
