This incredible autobiography of Christiane F. provides a vivid portrait of teen friendship, drug abuse, and alienation in and around Berlin’s notorious Zoo Station. Christiane’s rapid descent into heroin abuse and prostitution is shocking, but the boredom, longing for acceptance, thrilling risks, and musical obsessions that fill the rest of Christiane’s existence are familiar to everyone. Previously published in Germany and the US to critical acclaim, Zest’s new translation will also include original photographs of Christiane and her friends.
Well-written, but I'm not sure if that is because of the author or the translator. The story was not my type of story, but I can see how it would appeal to someone else. Personally, I just found it depressing.
