1962 Berlin fiction – author interview

In this bonus episode we talk again with Paul Grant, author of “Coercion” the fourth book about the Schultz family who live in Berlin.  His books are set at the end of the Second World War and the start of the Cold War.

Coercion, is set in 1962 against the backdrop of the Berlin Wall while it is still barbed wire and a fragile wall.  Escape attempts are frequent and these attempts are the major theme of Paul’s latest book.
