Waterstones Says

The author of the outrageous Look Who’s Back spins another bravura allegory, targeting the refugee crisis and transient celebrity amongst many other emotive and contentious themes. Brave, controversial and very, very funny, The Hungry and the Fat is a scintillating slice of satirical mayhem from a bold, maverick talent.

Signed Edition

By the author of Look Who's Back, a radical and bold satire in inequitable times.

Refugee camps in Africa are swelling.

And Europe has closed its borders. The refugees have no future, no hope, and no money to pay the vast sums now demanded by people smugglers. But what they do have is time.

And then an angel ariives from reality T.V.

When German model and star presenter Nadeche Hackenbusch comes to film at the largest of the camps, one young refugee sees a unique opportunity: to organise a march to Europe, in full view of the media. Viewers are gripped as the vast convoy moves closer, but the far right in Germany is regrouping and the government is at a loss. Which country will halt the refugees in their tracks?

The Hungry and the Fat.

A devastating, close-to-the-knuckle satire about the haves and have-nots in our divided world by one of Europe's finest and most perceptive writers, in which an outlandish conceit follows a kind of impeccable logic to a devastating conclusion.

Translated from the German by Jamie Bulloch
