Make Me German

After two Spiegel best-selling books exploring the quirks of German culture, I find I've become somewhat of a pundit for German life. Unsure about my position, and with severe doubts about my expertise, I decided to take on a series of integration challenges. Unfortunately, the vast majority go horribly wrong. Readers will learn:

  • What happens when someone of no musical talent creates a Schlager song.

  • Why you shouldn't accept a ride from a Mitfahrgelegenheitvan containing a mattress and a cat with one eye.

  • What watching seventy hours of German TV in a week does to your health (and faith in humanity).

  • How to really annoy a Beamte.

  • Why it's not a good idea to Nordic Walk throughBallermann 6, Mallorca.

  • Why you shouldn't attend a Schützenfest if you can neither drink nor march.

Make Me German is a 400 page, half English, half German book. Perfect for both language learning Ausländers and international Germans. Lovingly written, with a lot of humour, and avoiding the usual national clichés, I recount my adventures of trying to become German. On the way, I reaffirms why this country and its inhabitants have such a special place in my heart.
