Originally published: Bastei Lübbe : Eichborn, 2018
"A radical and bold satire in inequitable times. Germany has imposed an upper limit on asylum seekers, and Europe's borders are closed. Beyond the Sahara, huge camps have been built for millions of people who have no choice but to wait. They have so much time on their hands they could have walked to Europe by now ... if the Sahara weren't in the way. When German model and star presenter Nadeche Hackenbusch visits the largest of the camps with MyTV, the young refugee Lionel recognises a unique opportunity: to organise 150,000 refugees and set off on a march to Europe, in full view of the media. German T.V. viewers are gripped and advertising money pours in. The German government is at a loss. As the convoy moves closer, through Jordan and Syria and into Turkey, and , and the anger of the Far Right bubbles over, Germany's far right interior minister Joseph Leubl faces his greatest challenge yet, and two urgent questions: What do we do now? And what kind of country do we want to live in? A new bold, close-to-the-knuckle novel from one of Europe's finest and most perceptive satirical writers, in which an outlandish conceit follows a kind of impeccable logic to a devastating conclusion."--Publisher.
