l i t e r a r y f i c t i on on

Pieter Waterdrinker Poubelle Wessel is a Member of the European Parliament. At the height of the Maidan uprising in Kiev, he travels to Ukraine. While his marriage simmers along, Wessel wallows in the decadent, promiscuous Ukrainian society. But then the ghosts of his past in Russia come back to life. He is sucked into the war in Eastern Ukraine. Poubelle is a panoramic novel that exposes the issues of our time. In his acclaimed, lyrically sharp style, Waterdrinker paints a shocking portrait of an unstable and over-privileged Europe and the contemporary human condition. This is an important book that takes a fresh and unique look at Europe and the prelude to the MH17 disaster.

Maarten ’t Hart The Mother of Ikabod In the German magazine Der Spiegel Maarten ’t Hart was described as a ‘wunderbar altmodischer Erzähler.’ In these highly autobiographical stories this wonderful, old-fashioned storytelling proves to be ideally suited to catch the folly and absurdity of modern life. Seemingly mundane events such as the sale of a house, a solemn funeral, a church service, a meeting at a train station, a visit to the market or a casino all end tragicomically. Or sometimes just oppressively. Yet in all these stories a light tone prevails; they tell us that life is basically a farce which unfortunately, on occasion, ends in tragedy.

‘In all these surprisingly exciting and indeed quite witty stories something important is at stake.’ nrc Handelsblad ‘Why wasn’t ’t Hart awarded the P.C. Hooft Prize a long time ago?’ Het Parool

Marc Reugebrink The House of the Salmon After a discussion with his chef about the taste of wild versus farmed salmon Marcel, the owner of restaurant L’Ange perdu, decides to look into the matter. He travels to Norway to visit a salmon farm. During his visit he learns that his mother has passed away. While cleaning up her apartment he is shocked by the realization that his mother, against whom he had always rebelled, was the only one who could help him discover who he is. And that he hardly knew her. He has to invent her from head to toe in order to give himself a past. Meanwhile his ambitious chef bends the restaurant to his will, with all due consequences. ‘In his new novel Reugebrink seems to have found his true storyteller’s voice, even more so than in his last. Not just the part set in Norway is full of coleur locale and set to paper with an abundance of flair, when he writes about Marcel’s quest into the past of both his parents and his sister who died prematurely in a car accident, he manages to hold the reader in his fascinating grip.’ **** Knack

Their own and that of the location, Hastings, where a thousand years before a battle was fought which would be the seed of presentday England. Against this backdrop their own history gradually unfolds, with its own tragedy and turmoil, its own war and peace. Conquerors and defeated, occupiers and oppressed: No One from Belgium has them all. A book that does not shy away from the great themes and harsh truths, but offers everything to make them palatable: emotion, mystery, compassion, humour. ‘No grand words, no great dramas, but a sensitive portrait of a man looking back on a seemingly succesful life.’ **** Leidsch Dagblad ‘I began to forget that it was all just fiction, no small feat for this highly reflective writer.’ Kees ’t Hart in De Groene Amsterdammer

Annejet van der Zijl The American Princess On 13 April 1927, Allene Tew boarded the Mauretania in the harbour of New York. She was leaving behind everything she’d ever dreamed of as a young country girl – fame, fortune, motherhood and the love of her life. She’d lost almost everything. Tew was known as ‘the richest and saddest widow in town’, but she had a whole new life ahead of her: a family, a future as a real princess, Russian countess and godmother of the Dutch queen Beatrix. The American Princess is a reconstruction of a fascinating life, set in America and Europe, Victorian and modern times, industrial and Russian revolutions and two World Wars. But above all it’s the personal story of an exceptional woman who had the courage to follow her own, inimitable path to the bitter end.

Fik Meijer Peter the Apostle. Student, Teacher, Myth Peter was Jesus’ leading disciple, but what do we really know about him? Fik Meijer follows Peter through the Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles. The fisherman from Capernaum seems destined for a great career in Jesus’ movement, but first he has to evolve - through trial and error. His weaknesses emerge, his faith repeatedly falls short. Yet after the crucifixion of Jesus he becomes the leader of the congregation in Jerusalem. Then he disappears. The Acts focus on Paul from there on. What happened to Peter? Did he preach in Jerusalem, Corinth, Babylon or Rome? At the beginning of the second century stories were told that point to the latter. The tradition was formed that Peter died in Rome and was buried in the Vatican. Also he is said to have been the first bishop of Rome. The current pope sits on the Sedes Petri, the chair of Peter. By analysing the most important texts from the beginning of the second century Fik Meijer tries to distinguish fact from fiction.

 A new culture for our concept of economy

non - f i c t i on

Victor Broers Truth, Values & Prosperity Europe is at a turning point. The current political and economic crisis has revealed the weaknesses of our economic system and the mistakes in our way of economic thinking, based on the ideal of a free market, competition and the illusion of continuous growth. It approaches economy as an abstract science detached from culture, applicable to the whole of Europe. However, what we considered to be our (economic) reality for years on end is considered more and more as an outdated story in which the people have lost faith. The discussion about solutions for the debt problem and the design of Europe seems stalled. Victor Broers describes the changes taking place and starts a search for a new leading concept. A new story that enables a transition to a new system, to think differently and to keep the prosperity we have obtained in a sustainable way. He started the project ‘Redesigning Europe’ and talked to economists, politicians, thinkers, philosophers and others about ideas far beyond the story that designed our economy and present-day Europe.

Krijn van der Jagt The Way Up The Way Up introduces the reader to a new interpretation of the Bible. The author looks into what is behind the texts. He wants to understand the way the writers of the Holy Scripture thought. It seems that in most cases the cultural context of the ancient Near East is a key to understanding new and surprising insights. Van der Jagt connects the Bible with evolution. Many people think these two are contradictory. For example: the words spoken by Jesus that if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also, is often seen as a sign of weakness. In evolution the strong conquer the weak. Often it is forgotten that for evolution the survival of the individual is not important, it is the species that matters. Collaboration between and care for members of the species offers more advantages in the long run. Some Biblebooks entail insights that have stimulated the cultural evolution of mankind.

Dik van der Meulen The Children of the Night The relationship between wolf and mankind has always been paradoxical. The wolf, comrade in prehistory and forefather of all dogs, evolved into the devil in person after antiquity. For centuries it has been combatted by all means at hand - until a recent reversal. Nowadays, more and more people call the wolf ‘the crown on modern nature policy’. The Children of the Night is the account of the search for the wild wolf ánd for the wolf in man – with unexpected results. Aside from a symbol of cruelty and gluttony the wolf proves to be the symbol of mystical powers and sexual primal instincts; an animal that besides fear also invokes admiration and affection.

Toon Tellegen What the Hedgehog Really Wanted  Over 10,000 copies sold  Life’s major themes are broached in moving and amusing encounters between animals  Tellegen’s books have been translated in 21 languages One day the hedgehog, who often feels lonely, decides to invite everyone over. But at the same time it shies away from the idea, as it’s always afraid of doing something wrong. And what if the elephant really does show up, wouldn’t it break everything? And what about the frog’s croaking, will anyone even hear what the hedgehog has to say? What is actually worse, unexpected visitors or losing sleep over visitors you’re expecting? No, there’s a world of difference between wanting something and getting it. Maybe the hedgehog should just enjoy being alone. Original title Het verlangen van de egel Novel | 156 pages | Querido

Arnon Grunberg The Cache  Movie rights sold  Over 10,000 copies sold  Written as part of a scientific experiment about creativity Could there be a lovelier, more perfect reality than physical reality as we know it? For Lillian there is no doubt about it: real life is to be found online – outside that there is nothing but socially appropriate behavior. The renewal, or rebirth, of humankind will take place within that better reality, but first the old human must disappear. As receptionist for the cyber-security firm BClever Lillian moves stepby-step in the direction of her ideal: living without a body, being nothing more than pure intelligence; leaving the animal kingdom behind.

Guus Kuijer The Bible for Unbelievers  Over 65,000 copies sold  Part 2 shortlisted and part 3 longlisted for the ako Literature Prize 2014  Retelling of Bible stories by one of the Netherlands’ most popular writers

The Bible is a fascinating book. Western culture is unimaginable without the Christian holy book. However, many people, particularly those who did not grow up within the Christian tradition, have never read it. And that is a great shame, as it contains some of the most beautiful stories in world literature. Guus Kuijer retells these tales for both non-believers and believers, relating them from the points of view of the women, the slaves, the have-nots and the underdogs. Original title De Bijbel voor ongelovigen 288 pages | Athenaeum – Polak & Van Gennep

Rights sold: English (US, Seven Stories Press), German (Antje Kunstmann), Italian (La Nuova Frontiera). Guus Kuijer’s books have been translated into 21 languages. English and German translation available
