The Hungry and the Fat

Author(s): Timur Vermes

Literary Fiction

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.
