Does anyone know where i could buy the book "Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo" in ENGLISH


everywhere ive thought of looking only sells it in German

it is a German book, but i was wondering if it had been translated into English anywhere

its about this girl who grew up around the drugs culture of the 70s and got into heroin at 14...its her autobiography...ive seen the film, i wanted to read the book

thats part one of the film...its got English subtitles

its a true life story
this girl got into heroin at the age of 14...and prostitution.......she saw lots of her friends die around her from drug overdoses...they were all about 16/17

she struggled with her addiction untill 1996 when she had her son

You're the reason it's so expensive.


People like you want the book therefore it's in demand and costs lots!
I've been here since '04.

That'll be why.

If you go into Waterstones and ask over the counter, if you're EXTREMELY lucky, they might know someone who will print it on demand.

Highest I'd pay for a book would be 30, but only if it had a lot in it though. If not, 20.

yeah i just think its alot for a paperback

that would be ok for like a hardback...but then if its that rare i guess youre right oh well i can increase it

its got like 300 pages
