DOING GERMANY – On sale November 16, 2013
About the book –
DOING GERMANY is a series of books for those who are looking for an easy read and to laugh. This is the first book.
Agnieszka Paletta did what most of us only dream about doing – she quit her job, family and friends and travelled to live in a foreign country. And what’s more, she did this more than once. Call it reckless or fearless, that is she.
This laid-back, entertaining book is the story of this Polish-Canadian-lover-of-Italy’s move to Germany, a new frontier. Through her eyes, discover the curiosities of her surroundings; love some and gape at others, yearn for home, try to buy one, laugh with her and at her.
DOING GERMANY is travel writing at its best: a funny, irresistible portrait of Germany, set against the backdrop of Paletta’s relationship and vigorous loyalties as well as her devotion to Poland, Canada and Italy.
DOING GERMANY BOOK 2 – On sale February 15, 2016
About the book –
In the sequel to the best-selling DOING GERMANY, Agnieszka Paletta picks up exactly where she left off. She is still a slave to chocolate and wine, still a Polish-Canadian-lover-of-Italy, still a grasshopper in a new country, Germany. Two years may have passed, but the moose-in-headlights persists as she continues to discover Deutschland. (After two years, what is there left to discover?) Ye, of little faith. Plenty and plenty and then some! And what’s more, with many unexpected lessons that come with having a baby and owning a house.
Ever an immigrant in a foreign land, Paletta will take you for a cultural spin as you explore Germany through her Polish-Canadian-Italian eyes. So just sit back and enjoy the humorous, witty ride. (And pour yourself a glass of wine while you’re at it.)
About the author –
Agnieszka Paletta (née Mroszczyk) was born in Cracow, Poland in 1978.
When she was 9 years old, her family moved to Toronto, Canada. She graduated from the University of Toronto with a double-major in English and Criminology. Many jobs followed, both in North America and Europe, with no sequential relevance or career logic. By the age of 32, she had already worked in the fields of publishing, IT and teaching, been an executive assistant and a waitress, anything and everything in order to pursue adventure, travel and a restless spirit.
At present she makes her home in Wörth am Rhein, Germany with her husband and children.
