Witboy In Berlin - Adventures In The First World (Paperback): Deon Maas Witboy In Berlin - Adventures In The First World (Paperback)

When opportunity strikes, television producer Deon Maas joins the boatloads of migrants heading for Germany. Faced with the choice of taking all his possessions along or selling everything, he opts for the latter. With a duffel bag and his four dogs, he departs for the First World.

Decadent Berlin blows his mind but also leaves him at a loss for words. As he criss-crosses the city, scratching at its pulsating underbelly, he marvels at German idiosyncrasies, and is roped into this new world by an array of vegan anarchists, eclectic musicians, football hooligans and graffiti artists.

As he tries to settle in, he has to deal with everything from obnoxious bureaucrats to nosy neighbours. In the process, Maas debunks a few myths about the First World: it’s not a perfect place where everything works, and German efficiency is definitely overrated.

By confronting the loss of his support network and adapting to a different political and social context, he learns exactly how deep his African roots go and what it takes to find your place in Europe as a white African.

“Die honde en kinders verstaan Duits, maar ek nie.”

Toe sy vrou werk kry in Duitsland, besluit Deon Maas in ’n oogwink om Berlyn toe te trek. In hierdie intellektueel stimulerende, dekadente stad voel hy hom op sekere maniere dadelik tuis – op ander nie.

In die reis wat alle immigrante meemaak, ontdek hy meer oor homself en sy wortels terwyl hy sy voete in sy nuwe omgewing vind. Hy verwonder hom aan tipies Duitse gewoontes soos dat alle oorsese televisieprogramme (swak) oorgeklank word en dat die Duitsers hul sin vir ordelikheid op alles en almal afdwing.

Op sy avonture ontmoet hy veganistiese anargiste, sokkerboewe, ’n lid van ’n satiriese Duitse politieke party en neem hy selfs aan ’n protesoptog deel.

Maas ontdek dat alles nie perfek werk in die Eerste Węreld nie. Mense daar sukkel om probleme op te los oor alles so streng gereguleer is en hulle weet nie eintlik hoe om die uit-dagings te hanteer wat toenemende immigrasie veroorsaak nie.

Hy probeer ook antwoorde vind op vrae oor verlies, oor identiteit en hoe om as ’n wit immigrant uit Afrika in Europa in te pas. Maas besef al is hy op papier dalk iets van ’n Duitser danksy sy Duitse stamouers, is hy eintlik iemand heeltemal anders. Iemand wat in wese van Afrika is.

Skreeusnaaks en uittartend soos net Deon Maas kan.

In hierdie boek ontsien Maas niks of niemand nie. Hy skryf onbeskaamd en doodeerlik oor allerlei eg Suid-Afrikaanse heilige koeie. Afrikaans op kampusse, selfies, baarde, banting, die Guptas en die sogenaamde Stellenbosch Mafia loop deur onder die uitgesproke skrywer se skerp pen. Sy blatante eerlikheid oor alles van mans se “menere” tot Julius Malema, gay huwelike en NG-dominees is verfrissend.

Dit is vlymskerp, omstrede en onvergeetlik.
