Look Who's Back / Timur Vermes / 352 pgs
The premise of the book is that Adolf Hitler did not commit suicide in 1945, rather he wakes up in 2011 Berlin. The Berliners believe that Hitler is merely a very method actor/impersonator who is poking fun at the long-dead Fuhrer. He is given a spot on a variety show and quickly become a YouTube sensation. The book is definitely satire and is alternately, surprisingly funny but, most of the time, very chilling.
