The Hungry and the Fat by Timur Vermes

11.25

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.

The only thing they have is time. AND THEN AN ANGEL ARRIVES FROM REALITY T.V. When 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. Translated from the German by Jamie Bulloch

“Whizz-bang energy and gleeful imaginative savagery” Sam Leith, Guardian
“More than mere satire, it’s a book that engages deeply” Alex Preston, Financial Times
“An immensely enjoyable read” Daniel Hahn, Spectator
“Satirical, sharp, believable … Brilliant” Rick O’Shea, RTE
