The hilarious autobiography of Bambi Kellermann, the blonde Afrikaans girl who married a Nazi and became a stripper on Hamburg 's Reeperbahn.Evita Bezuidenhout might be the most famous white woman in South Africa, but her younger sister Bambi, the blonde Afrikaans girl who married a Nazi and became a stripper on Hamburg 's Reeperbahn, has a much juicier story to tell.In this fictional autobiography, Pieter-Dirk Uys traces Bambi 's journey from the Orange Free State to Europe, the USA, South America, and back to a democratic South Africa. On the way she meets The Beatles in Hamburg, travels with Hemingway in Spain, rubs shoulders with Marlene Dietrich and Ava Gardner, sups with Paraguay 's dictator General Stroessner, and of course engages with her sister Evita. Peopled with showgirls and film stars, Nazi hunters and secret agents, this is an outrageous and hilarious tale.Bambi 's story is woven into history in a hilarious way. Examples: she 's the one who gives The Beatles their distinctive haircuts, and she advises John F. Kennedy when he wants to know how to say I am a Berliner .
