"Cobblestone streets smell cleaner than paved ones. The frequent rains wash all the unpleasantness through the cracks and into the sand. Wolf was like that-able to soak all the meanness and corruption and envy of blistered souls into himself, where it vanished, swallowed up by something he liked to call destiny. Maybe that was what set him apart from every other soul I ever met-there was only purity about him, none of the spoilage and decadence that stinks up the lives of mere mortals like me and you."
Wolfgang Karsten is everything David Nelson is not-compelling, unpredictable, enigmatic, and full of life. David, an American, is a tired mathematics student who simply wishes to break free of his university life for a few months by escaping to Germany for the summer of 1975. When a whim stops him at the little town of Rendsburg, he finds more than he'd bargained for: the best friend he's ever had, a girl unlike any other he's loved, and a rivalry that will threaten to tear their friendships apart. As David finds himself falling deeper in love with Sabi, he comes to understand that she will never leave Wolf-even when Wolf begins to encourage her relationship with David. Soon, David and Sabi realize that Wolf has a secret. Can what he is hiding salvage this world in which the three are living-or will it destroy them all?
From the award-winning author of God's Executioner comes I Am not Wolf, a tale of love and loss, friendship and betrayal, life and death. Roger Terry has woven a story within a story that will take the reader from the soft beauty of free Germany to the quiet desperation of those trapped behind the Berlin Wall as the characters come to know more about themselves and discover the importance of freedom.
