In the novel, Adolf Hitler wakes up in 2011 from a 66-year sleep in his subterranean Berlin bunker to find the Germany he knew entirely changed: Internet-driven media spreads ideas in minutes and fumes celebrity obsession; immigration has produced multicultural neighborhoods bringing together people of varying race, ethnicity, and religion; and the most powerful person in government is a woman. Hitler is immediately recognized … as an impersonator of uncommon skill. The public assumes the fulminating leader of the Nazi party is a performer who is always in character, and soon his inevitable viral appeal begets YouTube stardom, begets television celebrity on a Turkish-born comedian’s show. His bigoted rants are mistaken for a theatrical satire-exposing prejudice and misrepresentation—and his media success emboldens Hitler to start his own political party, and set the country he finds a shambles back to rights.

With daring and dark humor, Look Who’s Back skewers the absurdity and depravity of the cult of personality in modern media culture.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[Look Who’s Back] is desperately funny…Mr. Vermes has created an ingenious comedy of errors in which the jokes are either on Hitler’s misapprehensions about the modern world or the modern world’s refusal to take him at face value…Read this book.”

    New York Times

  • “Very funny…Mr. Vermes gives us a bracingly double-sided Hitler—the arresting public speaker and astute negotiator who loves dogs and small children, and also the fanatical champion of political violence, global tyranny, and ethnic cleansing…Translator Jamie Bulloch helps by providing a glossary at the close of the book, but what people will remember is his perfect rendering of the ridiculously orotund, yet oddly compelling, manner of Hitler’s speechifying.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • "Look Who’s Back is Hitler satire at its best…well-researched and uproariously cringeworthy…laugh-out-loud funny.”

    Newsweek
