The Awkward Family Photos book makes its German debut May 9th, 2014. Thank you Germany for spreading the schrecklich!
Who chose the title? ‘Schrecklich’ is not a great synonym for ‘awkward.’ It does use a double meaning that works in German and English, being something like “My terribly nice family” or “My frightfully pretty family.”
Was ‘Peinlich’ or ‘ungeschickt’ (or even ‘unbequem’ in the running?
I think it is according to ‘eine schrecklich nette familie’ – the german name of ‘married with children’
This is really cool. I agree with Mairin – it’s a play on the title of Married with Children. Not sure about ungeschickt or unbequem – those wouldn’t make any sense here
hey kent, it was chosen by the German publisher.
Woohoo! We made the cover!
