Synopsis: When a young Englishman visits Cold War Leipzig with a group of students, he meets an East German girl who is only just beginning to wake up to the way her society is governed. He wants to help, but her situation makes him nervour. He ends up in denial about his feelings for the girl until one day, with Germany now united, he sets out to find her. But he has no idea where to start - all he knows of her identity is the nickname he gave to her - Snowleg.

Review: "Already my bet for this year's Booker Prize. A superbly achieved and moving novel."
--Giles Fodden, "Guardian"
"Snowleg is his finest book yet. Beautifully written, rich in character, it displays all the courage for which its hero so desperately wants to be recognized."
--"Economist"
"This novel is one of the finest attempts in English to convey something of two very strange places which no longer appear on the map of Europe... Shakespeare has told a very skillful story."
--"Evening Standard"

"From the Trade Paperback edition."
