This was a very interesting book recommended to me by a co-worker. It's a non-fiction account of a journalist who goes undercover as an immigrant Turkish worker in Germany in the mid 1980s. The purpose of the novel was to describe the horrible and inhumane conditions many immigrant Turks were forced to work in. I felt some of the situations were a bit over-exaggerated at times by the author (he seemed to set up certain situations to achieve a specific outcome that he could later denounce), but all in all it was a fascinating insight into an underground economy. Probably not too dissimilar to the Hispanic experience in America.
