Typically German but amusing – new stories by Wladimir Kaminer
Germany has a lot to offer that is endearing – advisors at savings banks who advise against all investments; resourceful tax offices; or vegetarians who like eating meat – except that of animals. And then Germans have the perfect form of document administration.
After all, a country is a difficult enterprise and if you are to get a grip on it you need ingenuity. Thus the Americans invented the Colt, the Russians the distillery and the Germans the lever arch file. Wladimir Kaminer views his adopted country with a lot of understanding for its quirks and peculiarities.
