The American Netherlander
25 Years of Expat Tales
Greg Shapiro – The American Netherlander – is known from the ‘Netherlands Second’ video, Comedy Central, and Boom Chicago. He now celebrates 25 years in the Netherlands by revealing his hilariously clumsy assimilation into Dutch society. If you are looking for an official guide to Dutch culture, this is not it. BUT if you’re looking for one man’s completely subjective and utterly quirky impression of Dutch culture, then this book is for you.
In The American Netherlander, Shapiro combines elements of his first book How to Be Orange and How to Be Dutch: the Quiz – featuring the questions that SHOULD be on the Dutch citizenship exam.
