The Squirrel Principle

A new publishing venture, the Pigeonhole, commissioned me to write for their series ‘Letters from Berlin’. The result, a piece on Prenzlauer Berg called “The Squirrel Principle”, was published here yesterday. The idea was born from a similar project of dispatches written about various countries in Africa.

It was pure luck that I found a photograph on Facebook showing Soupanova’s last days. And even happier to see a friend of mine in it, which meant I could ask him to use it.

If you sign up to Pigeonhole, you receive staves – one text from a series – in your email account every so often. You don’t have to buy the whole book.
