Peter Renz, Schöne Gegend. Erfahrungen mit Deutschland ( Friedrichshafen: Verlag Robert Gessler, 1989), 171. The stories discussed in this chapter appear in the same volume, from which references will be taken. Page numbers will follow direct quotations in parentheses.

See Heidrun Suhr, "Ausländerliteratur: Minority Literature in the Federal Republic of Germany", New German Critique 46 ( 1989): 71-103 on the larger context of this literary production. See also Arlene Akiko Teraoka, "Talking 'Turk': On Narrative Strategies and Cultural Stereotypes", New German Critique 46 ( 1989): 104-128. Both articles have informed my own work.

See also Dietrich Krusche, "Die Deutschen und die Fremden. Zu einem durch fremde Augen 'gebrochenen' Deutschlandbild" ["Germans and Foreigners. A 'Broken' Image of Germany through Foreign Eyes"), afterword to the volume Als Fremder in Deutschland. Berichte, Erzählungen, Gedichte von Ausländern [As a Foreigner in Germany. Reports, Stories, Poems by Foreigners), ed. Irmgard Ackermann ( Munich: Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag, 1983), 189 ff. Krusche outlines the three major themes common to the accounts of "experiences" with Germans and German culture collected in this volume: "Arbeit, Zweckhaftigkeit, Erfolg" ["Work, purpose, success]", 197 ff.; "'Ordnung' und 'Verniinftigkeit' ["'order' and 'reasonability'"], 198 ff.; and "Markt und Menschlichkeit" ["market and humaneness"], 200 ff.

See also Anton Kaes, From Hitler to Heimat ( Cambridge, Mass., and London: Harvard University Press, 1989) on the contemporary preoccupation with Heimat in German television and film.
