Gregory Shapiro – the American Netherlander – moved to the Netherlands in 1994. After ten years he completed the equivalent of a Dutch Assimilation Course and received a Dutch passport. By now he can write in Dutch, but it still reads like a bad version of Google Translate. Shapiro married a Dutch woman and writes about Dutch culture at her insistence. Shapiro lives in Amsterdam with his wife and 2 children and talks about himself in the third person.
