Leuenberger on Asserate, 'Manieren'
Category: Non-fiction. Asfa-Wossen Asserate is an Ethiopian prince, who since has lived primarily in Germany. In his book he shows that manners are more a matter of attitude than the knowledge of complicated rules of behavior. What is unique to his point of view is a certain distance from his subject, and a profound knowledge of behavior in all spheres of our society.
