This was the collection with which Durcan broke through to the huge and appreciative audience he enjoys today. In the first part are poems of great satirical comedy and also of great passion and indignation, and in the second part, poems about the break-up of a marriage so intense they would hurt if they weren't also possessed of the healing gifts of truthfulness and humor. In The Berlin Wall Café Durcan has located that space between the walls and barriers societies and individuals erect—a no-man's-land of the free imagination where we meet as the vulnerable and comical human beings we are. It contains some of his very best work.
