9781741759754: How Now Brown Frau

A poignant, revealing, and hilarious memoir about what happened when a former children's television host and brothel receptionist woke up one morning in Munich four months pregnant, without a word of German under her belt, and surrounded by Bavarians

Merridy Eastman plunges headlong into a new life in Bavaria in this tale encompassing friendship, marriage, motherhood, and how even a feminist can own a Dirndl. Here we meet her conventional Bavarian inlaws, climb excruciating language barriers (not to mention a few Alps), and grapple with a culture that seems to her, at times, to be on a whole other planet. A world of challenge opens up—the food, the weather, the customs, the traditional religious greetings, the silence on public transport, and of course the Freikorperkultur, or nudism, acceptable even in Munich's central public gardens. But with help from some wonderful expat friends, Merridy grows to love the beautifully restored ancient city, and to realize that travel doesn't just broaden the mind, it can also open the heart. Her story is laugh-out-loud funny and all the more so for being completely true.
