A man, dying in the ER, reflects on his life, especially on his process of writing his one and only book.

The story fell flat for me. Very little depth, unconvincing dialogue. Maybe those are hard to achieve in under 100 pages, but then, there are plenty of awesome short stories, aren‘t there?

It‘s our “National week to promote Dutch books”. This means that when you buy a book by a Dutch writer you receive this one as a gift.

It‘s a short novella about an elder man who is afraid of dying and looks back on his life as a troubled writer and the fact that his very religious father disappeared when he was just a kid. A promising story but it felt incomplete in the end.

Leftcoastzen Are there any Dutch writers you would recommend? in translation of course cuz I‘m one those dumb Americans that doesn‘t speak or read another language. 6mo
