Wolkenbruchs waghalsiges Stelldichein mit der Spionin

Wolkenbruch’s Reckless Rendez-Vous with the Seductive Spy

Published by Diogenes as Wolkenbruchs waghalsiges Stelldichein mit der Spionin
Original Title: Wolkenbruchs waghalsiges Stelldichein mit der Spionin

Motti is back – this time to save the world.
Masel tov!

Motti fights evil, fake news, his mame – and his weakness for shiksas.

After bestselling Wolkenbruch's Weird and Wonderful Journey into the Arms of a Shiksa comes the follow up novel – ludicrous, surprising, provocative and highly topical.

After parting ways with his devoutly Jewish family, Motti Wolkenbruch is taken in by others who share a similar fate. But it turns out that they have far more than mutual support in mind: they are striving for world domination. Albeit without any success.
Things finally get going once Motti takes control. But a group of Nazis have the same goal – and a dangerously attractive spy.

»By taking conspiracy theories to their absurd lengths, Meyer makes it clear how mendacious they are – so far-fetched that the only possible response is laughter. [...] A pleasure to read.«

Martina Läubli / NZZ am Sonntag, Zurich

»Thomas Meyer’s strident satire novel is merely the continuation of the real insanity of digital comment culture.«

Hansruedi Kugler / Luzerner Zeitung

»And so Meyer reaches for the only weapon remaining to him against stupidity and ignorance: the razor-sharp sword of black humour.«

Claudia Senn / Annabelle, Zurich

»The world as a monstrous grotesque, the insanity that has long since become part of our present-day lives flashing up in lurid colours.«

Felix Münger / srf.ch

»The bestseller sequel is a bold step away from part one: instead of counting on Swiss local colour and romcom-style charm, Meyer goes for fast-paced action.«

Philippe Zweifel / Tages-Anzeiger, Zurich

»Meyer’s use of the grotesque creates an entertaining work. Decorum is ignored, allowing shamelessness to shine through. A great comedy.«

Janina Fleischer / Leipziger Volkszeitung

»Thomas Meyer is the shooting star of the Swiss literary world.«

3sat, Mayence

»Anyone hoping for a simple follow-up to Mordecai ›Motti‹ Wolkenbruch’s adventures in love will be disappointed by Wolkenbruch’s Reckless Rendez-Vous with the Seductive Spy – and all the better for it!«

Die Presse, Vienna

»The author takes unmistakable pleasure in deriding the postwar Nazis for their new ›Führer‹ and new ›Lebensborn‹ programme.«

Jochanan Shelliem / Deutschlandfunk Kultur, Berlin

»It’s actually a wonderful satire on the prejudices against Jews and the ›Jewish world conspiracy‹. [. . .] Unfortunately it’s also a satire with a very serious background, as we saw from the attack in Halle.«

Dorothee Meyer-Kahrweg / HR2 Kultur, Frankfurt

»Scintillating in numerous sections. Prejudices crumble to the ground, leaving only a pitiful heap.«

Manuel Müller / Neue Zürcher Zeitung

»This novel couldn’t be more topical. And perhaps that’s why Thomas Meyer’s wit comes across so deftly.«

Alexia Weiss / Wiener Zeitung, Vienna

»It’s a wild ride with Thomas Meyer.«

Erich C. Setzwein / Süddeutsche Zeitung, Munich

»It almost makes you want to cry out: Now that’s Jewish humour!«

Alexia Weiss / Wiener Zeitung, Vienna

»Meyer’s debut novel examines traditional Jewish values in a delightfully witty way, plays with prejudices and combines wordplay with situation comedy.«

Jochen Kürten / Deutsche Welle, Bonn

»He has good ideas, and refers to contemporary cases.«

Thomas Strässle / SRF Literaturclub, Zurich
