Non-Fiction German-American Essays (2019)


Home from Home Cover

Home from Home was first published as a weekly column in The Suburban Times in Lakewood, WA.

The essays compare the author’s former home, Germany, with her new one, the United States. From food to pastimes, nature, and holidays, Susanne Bacon describes what shapes a German US immigrant’s everyday life.

This book doesn’t intend to be an advisory for people who plan to emigrate, though. Avoiding any controversial topics, the collection has turned out to be a love declaration to two nations that might be more similar to each other than you would believe.
