About this book
Paperback edition of Oltermann's witty look at the lighter side of Anglo-German relations over the past 100 years. Oltermann is a German who moved to England when he was 16, so he has experienced the best and worst of both cultures. 'It's so refreshing to hear a witty German poke fun at us,' "The Times"
In 1996, in the middle of watching an ill-tempered football match between England and Germany, the author's parents tell him that they are going to leave their home city Hamburg behind and move to London. A number of worrying questions arise. How would English schoolboys take to a lanky 16-year-old German?
