Susan Tuttles writing is spontaneous, from the heart and has a deeper, universal message that anyone who has ever had to adapt to a new language or community will enjoy.

She tells how she learned some important Dus and Donts, how she copes with differing attitudes about being a mother, a friend, a neighbor or a shopper. She writes as if she were writing to a friend, sometimes explaining the Swiss to the Americans, sometimes the Americans to the Swiss. She gets to know several Santas, makes friends (and enemies) with the help of a dog or a washing machine.

She finds a Heidi on a Harley and tries to justify the pleasure of findi ng free furniture for the price of a bashed fender. She gets stuck and unstuck in the process of adapting and preserving her identity. Anna Regula Hartmann, well-known as ANNA, whose caricatures and drawings regularly appear in numerous Swiss and German publications, has illustrated Inside Outlandish.
