Book Description:

What's nice jewish girl from New York doing in a place like Berlin? The answer, Holly-Jane Rahlens shows, is sometimes odd, often unexpected, and always hilarious. From her childhood in Queens, where her plot to snare the captain of the junior high basketball team fouls out when JFK is assassinated on the day she was to make her cheerleader debut, to the fateful evening in What's nice jewish girl from New York doing in a place like Berlin? The answer, Holly-Jane Rahlens shows, is sometimes odd, often unexpected, and always hilarious. From her childhood in Queens, where her plot to snare the captain of the junior high basketball team fouls out when JFK is assassinated on the day she was to make her cheerleader debut, to the fateful evening in 1972 at the Museum of Modern Art, when she mistakes one Jurgen Markovski for Dustin Hoffman, falls hopelessly in love, and agrees to go live with him in his Berlin apartment-cum-commune, we follow Becky through the wasteland of singledom -- and every one of its sweet but ephemeral oases. When Jurgen goes the way of all flings and Becky finds herself on her own in a strange old world, it doesn't take long to discover her true love was not for him but for his hometown: Berlin, Europe's only glitzy metropolis, New York's ever-renascent double. Becky Bernstein is an uninhibited and unrepentant romp through all of the fun things a single woman can do in two of the world's most irrepressible cities.
