To Prussia with Love: Misadventures in Rural East Germany

Length: 320 pages3 hours


Farce meets romance in this amusing travel memoir set in East Germany In a desperate attempt to save his relationship with girlfriend Lena and take a break from the world of journalism, Roger Boyes agrees to make a great escape from the easy urban lifestyle of Berlin and decamp to the countryside. He has hopes for Italy, but Lena has inherited a run-down old manor in the deepest, darkest area of Brandenburg. Needing a form of income, they decide to set up a bed and breakfast with a British theme. Enter unhelpful Harry and his Trinidadian chef cousin, a mad Scotsman to advise them on rebranding Brandenburg, some suicidal frogs, and a posse of mad tourists. It all culminates in a cricket match between the British and the Germans on an old Russian minefield.
