Overview

HE'S BACK AND HE'S FUHRIOUS!

"Desperately funny . . . An ingenious comedy of errors." —Janet Maslin, The New York Times


"Satire at its best." —Newsweek



In this record-breaking bestseller, Timur Vermes imagines what would happen if Adolf Hilter reawakened in present-day Germany: YouTube stardom.




Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of open ground, alive and well. It's the summer of 2011 and things have changed—no Eva Braun, no Nazi party, no war. Hitler barely recognizes his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman.


People certainly recognize him—as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own TV show, and people begin to listen. But the Fuhrer has another program with even greater ambition in mind—to set the country he finds in shambles back to rights.


With daring dark humor, Look Who's Back is a perceptive study of the cult of personality and of how individuals rise to fame and power in spite of what they preach.
