A sensuous, richly illustrated cultural history of the German soul
There has never been a book like this one. Two authors who could hardly be more different affectionately and critically, knowledgeably and without fear of contact examine what the German soul really is.
They run the German soul to ground in words as different as "Abendbrot", meaning a light evening meal, and "Wanderlust" (the joy of hiking); "Männerchor" (male choir) and "Fahrvergnügen" (driving pleasure); "Abgrund" (abyss) and "Zerrissenheit" (conflict). The result is a profound and many-faceted cultural history of the German people in 60 chapters.
“A splendid page-turner.”
