Overview

Germany has imposed an upper limit on the number of asylum seekers, and Europe’s borders are closed. Beyond the Sahara, huge camps have been built for millions of people who have no choice but to wait. They have been waiting so long that they could have walked to Europe by now… if it didn’t spell certain death.
When German model and TV star Nadeche Hackenbusch visits the largest of the camps with a camera crew, young refugee Lionel recognizes a unique opportunity: to use the media attention to organize 150,000 refugees to set off on a march to Europe.
The viewing ratings are off the scale! and advertising money pours in. But Germany’s politicians only look away helplessly. As the convoy moves closer, through Jordan and Syria and into Turkey, interior minister Joseph Leubl faces his greatest challenge yet and two urgent questions: What do we do now? And what kind of country do we want to live in?

Giving readers exactly what they loved about Look Who’s Back, this new book is explosive, radical and full of Timur’s trademark wit. Timur pulls no punches and aims directly where it hurts the most. This book that will have enthusiastic fans and bitter opponents. But we can promise that it will leave no one indifferent.

Praise for Look Who's Back
You know his name. You know his face. You know his hair and mustache, which are caricatured with sharp, witty minimalism on the cover of Look Who's Back, in which a baffled Adolf Hitler is returned to the even more baffled German people. Now you'll also know Timur Vermes, whose debut novel has created a sensation in Germany. [Look Who's Back] is desperately funny . . . Mr. Vermes has created an ingenious comedy of errors in which the jokes are either on Hitler's misapprehensions about the modern world or the modern world's refusal to take him at face value . . . Read this book.–Janet Maslin, The New York Times
