"A fascinating, provocative, and highly eccentric volume that is part biography, part travelogue, part detective story."
--New York Times

"Witty, intelligent, and told with rollicking, trenchant style."
--Boston Globe
"A hoot of a book."
--Washington Post Book World
"A black-comic stylist who never misses an opportunity for a malicious aside."
"A sparkling idea, and its realization...yields vivid travel writing and information of a ghostly but fascinating sort."
--The New Yorker
"Absorbing and highly readable....Since the collapse of Easy Germany in 1989, the Nietzsche papers have become more accessible. Mr. Macintyre has made excellent use of them in reconstructing the story of this formidable woman."
--New York Times Book Review
"Enjoyable and informative."
--New York Review of Books
"Macintyre's journey and his descriptions of what he found make compelling reading. But more fascinating still is the story Macintyre interweaves with his discovery of Nueva Germania, that of Elisabeth's own life, and her deliberate distortions of her brother's philosophy to make it accord with her own."
--The Sunday Times [UK]
"In 1886, Bernard Forster and Elisabeth Nietzsche arrived in Paraguay with a boatload of German peasants...The venture failed, but what became of the colony? Ben Macintyre set off to find out."
--The Sunday Telegraph [London]
"Engaging and entertaining...Forgotten Fatherland weaves together a number of curious and disparate strands, and makes new use of the Nietzsche archive in Weimar."
--The Times Literary Supplement

"Lurid and delightful: Rider Haggard couldn't ask for more."
--Kirkus Reviews
"[A] brilliant piece of investigative journalism."
--Publishers Weekly
