Look Who's Back, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


The smash-hit satirical bestseller, more than 3 million copies sold worldwide Film a box-office hit in Germany, 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 F hrer 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.

Review by

Helps if you know a bit about both modern day Germany and the era of the Weimar Republic and third reich. If you think this is a book about amusing things hitter says then you haven't got the point. The real cleverness of the book lies in revealing the absurdity, blandness and susceptibility of our own present day society. Thought provoking and enjoyable.
