Hi all – welcome to ANDREA’S SALON, the section for cultural news and chit chat – mainly in English. Concerts, events, new books, orbituaries, lifestyle news: read my personal take on entertaining as well as serious matters and about personalities we love.
From Zanzibar. From Africa. And beyond. Global culture – global communication.
My book From Sansibar with Love, which started off this whole website and column was published first on 1 March 2015, Orell Füssli Publishing (in German language only).
My book is a frank take on a bi-cultural relationship and a reflection of more than two decades living in and writing about Africa
I am happy to say it has become sort of a long-seller, still available (see order details on this website) and still valid – especially if and when you are travelling to Zanzibar. Or if you are having, have had or are contemplating – to say it mildly – a similar love affair. My book is a frank take on a bi-cultural (still-growing-strong) relationship and a reflection of more than two decades living in and writing about Africa.
From Sansibar with Love – a book, a lifestyle, a world view. With it we like to welcome you to the island between internet and tradition, veils and sins, polygamy and emancipation. And to say it with Deborah Harry, grand dame of punk and forefront woman pioneer: One way or another… we’re gonna get you, will we?
