My Books in German

How I came to write books in German

Every cat lover has gone through this:
Your beloved cat dies, and you grieve – maybe you even cry, and you excuse yourself to friends – “I’m so silly – she was only a pet.”

But was she just a pet? Or was she a deep, complex individual creature like we are?

Do cats think, feel, have free will as we do? Do they have souls as deep as ours? Do they love us back?

And while we’re at it – do we humans have a soul? What is a soul?

These are the questions I ask in this book of essays, stories and thoughts about love, life, the soul and cats.

From Planet America to
America Without the Bullshit

“Do Cats Have Souls” is really three books in one, all interwoven:
– A thoughtful essay about the human soul;
– A personal essay about cats and their souls,
and, just because I like cats,
– 12 cat tales, from the legends of Bastet and Muhammed’s cat to a cat horror tale and a cat murder mystery; from a cat’s Christmas present to a cat’s struggle to make sense of life, not to mention love stories that never would have happened, had it not been for cats.

The German Political Column

The American Provocateur

Every week for 2 years I provoked, prodded and parodied the Germans for their politically-correct and at the same time anti-American thinking in Germany’s leading newsweekly “Die Zeit” (online version) – until the woke outrage became too much for the middle-class-leftist flagship and I was canceled. On the one hand, a badge of honor, on the other, I still miss jousting with the readers every week. Oh, and let me just say it: All the terrible conservative things I said about Putin? Turned out to be true, didn’t they?
