"The American Way of Life" is something you usually don't stop and think about. Dutch artist Jean Koning, however, noticed that his personal behaviour resembled those of popular American trends. His European standards were basically replaced by American ones.

With that in his conscious mind, he started to contemplate and record his experiences in writing. His interpretations of 'life' are now collected in the book 'Visions'.

It's a humorous book where absurdity is the main key to a colorful life. Traveling between his two houses in both Amsterdam and New York, Jean Koning wrote this speedy piece of work in between fashion week, the release party of his own album and lounging on the couch in his apartment. Wondering about the latest trends and hypes, abusing TV-shows and Hollywood-stars, he came up with a new philosophy on America.
