The Desirable Alien

A novel by

Excerpt from The Desirable Alien: At Home in Germany

If you live in Frankfurt you will say that Germany is the most cultured, the richest, the most practical of all the States. You may realize that there is Essen, where the guns come from. Or, if you live on the Rhine, you may well say that the German is the gayest, the most careless, the most musical, of pleasant men since Ireland has become sober and has cultivated a Middle Class.
