About "How to Be Orange"

Complete with everything from awkward encounters speaking "Dunglish" to confusing moments of "Multiple Nationality Disorder," comedian Greg Shapiro teamed up with a Dutch illustrator for this hilarious unofficial (and utterly subjective) guide to Dutch culture. 

In "How to Be Orange," Shapiro poses questions like, "If Holland is the Drug Capital of the world, why is it so hard to get antibiotics?" while sharing his clumsy assimilation experiences over the last two decades.
