ANDREAS_2Andreas Bracher, born 1959. I grew up and lived in Germany, before life transferred me to the opposite shores of the Atlantic ocean five years ago. I have been writing for the Europäer, on and off, for 16, 17 years, – mostly about historical and political topics, America (the US), but also about literature and culture in a broad sense.

I have also written, translated, edited a number of books (in German), which mostly deal with German, European and Transatlantic history of the last 150 years.

Her life took a different turn with the translation work of the biography of D.N. Dunlop. Since 2010 she has been working as assistant to Perseus Verlag.
