'Brautigan is my favorite author. I have read all his work. It's about nothing, and about everything at the same time. Beauty is more important than truth.'
A singular and characteristic novel by Worthy, about a lost generation that seems willing to sacrifice everything in the name of fame and relevance.
'I have read The Bureau with great pleasure. Voskuil's alter ego Maarten Koning describes how he functions as an office slave in the micro-society of Het Bureau. In De Buurman we read how Maarten is actually caught up in complicated social situations at home. Because they now take place at home, they feel even more inescapable than in Het Bureau.' — Paulien Cornelisse
The sequel to the bestseller Taal is really my thing. And then there is more than the title suggests. The successor to Taal is really my thing (2009) is again full of useless, yet amusing analyzes of our language use. This is not a P.S. but an update.
Language is really my thing is the mega-bestseller by Paulien Cornelisse with equally hilarious and recognizable observations about our language use.
'In my opinion the best book about how things went in the DDR.' — Paulien Cornelisse
'A timeless tale about how easily boundless freedom can turn into immeasurable chaos.'
'Jennifer Egan writes so freshly and draws you into the story so well. For example, in this book she manages to write an entire chapter in the form of a Powerpoint presentation, which is also very moving!' — Paulien Cornelisse
Limited edition on Ali - the man, the legend, and the myth in all his raw, prime glory.
'I think this is the finest collection of Van het Reve essays there is. In every essay he analyzes a widely held belief. For example: At Philips they could make a lamp that burns for years, but they don't, because then they won't sell any more. Very rational but also funny, Van het Reve explains why this is nonsense.' — Paulien Cornelisse
