Look Who's Back
A work of genius.
This is probably one of the funniest and most thought provoking books I have read in my life. Yes, okay, the subject of Adolf Hitler is one filled with ta... READ MORE

Funny but also profoundly dark.
I'm tempted to say that this book is a work of genius. It manages to have some moments that are simply perfections of ridiculous satire and yet also can sa... READ MORE

A witty, wry, thought-provoking read!
While the concept for this book sounds highly controversial and not the most obvious basis for comedy, Look Who's Back is a very readable and amusing satir... READ MORE

Synopsis

A box-office-hit film now available on Netflix. A two-part BBC Radio 4 Dramatisation directed by and starring David Threlfall (Shameless). Berlin, Summer 2011. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of open ground, alive and well. Things have changed - no Eva Braun, no Nazi party, no war. Hitler barely recognises his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman. People certainly recognise him, albeit as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen. But the Fuhrer has another programme with even greater ambition - to set the country he finds a shambles back to rights. Look Who's Back stunned and then thrilled 1.5 million German readers with its fearless approach to the most taboo of subjects. Naive yet insightful, repellent yet strangely sympathetic, the revived Hitler unquestionably has a spring in his step. Translated from German by Jamie Bulloch

I think he may have mentioned it once or twice, but amazingly gets away with it. Actually, Hitler comes across more as Victor Meldrew with added swastikas ... READ MORE
