When German librarian Jan travels to Italy to marry his German-Italian bride Sara, his first encounter with her lively South Italian family turns into a very humorous, but for him rather challenging nightmare. Especially Sara’s flamboyant father Antonio gives Jan a hard time although he should know better: Antonio himself was a stranger in a strange land when he immigrated to Germany in the sixties. The novel “Maria, He Doesn’t Like It!” sold over 1.3 million copies in Germany alone and stayed 66 weeks in the top ten of the bestselling lists.
