‘American Woman’ Gayle Tufts


“I wanna be like Michelle Obama, I wanna have her “Oberarme” – Gayle Tufts. 

Monika Müller-Kroll sits down with entertainer Gayle Tufts to talk about her new book, “American Woman,” and how she lost her “Heimat,” the U.S., and found her “Zuhause” in Berlin. Currently applying for German citizenship, Gayle holds forth on a range of topics from the German “Schublade” mentality to the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” (“It’s like the New Yorker crossed with something for Mensa students”) to Klaus Wowereit – and Michelle Obama’s upper arms.
