The German Passion for Pasta Salad and Other Strange Stories

24 short stories

Rafik Schami has been living in Germany for almost 40 years now, but he has not lost his marvelling and critical look at German everyday life. In his inimitable charming way he writes about the Germans and their linguistical quirks, is astonished about the unshakeable consistency with which German guests contribute to invitations with self-made pasta salads, learns that a department store is not a bazaar and reveals why he did not become an American.

From the bestselling author of "The Dark Side of Love".
