An American living in London receives a phone call from a German policewoman telling him the nearly inconceivable news that his sister Miriam has been found dead in her Berlin apartment - from starvation.

"Pointless & boring"
A powerful and elegant debut audiobook about love, memory, exile, and war. One snowy December morning in an old European city, an American man leaves his shabby hotel to meet a local woman who has agreed to help him search for an apartment to rent. The Apartment follows the couple across a blurry, illogical, and frozen city into a past the man is hoping to forget, and leaves them at the doorstep of an uncertain future - their cityscape punctuated by the man's lingering memories of time spent in Iraq and the life he abandoned in the United States.
