The Hungry and the Fat by Timur Vermes

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 ARRIVES 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.

Peer & Press Reviews

A great book: funny, wicked, tragic.

Kester Schlenz, Stern

An outlandish, take-no-prisoners satire that skewers timid politicians, greedy TV executives, and the general public’s thirst for global meaning disguised as entertainment.  Its plotting is crisp, fast-moving, and entertaining.

Bookmunch

Satirical, sharp, believable…  Brilliant.

Rick O’Shea, RTE
