Editorial In de trein op weg naar de Buchmesse in Frankfurt overvalt mij altijd een heerlijk gevoel. Zo’n klein gevoel van opwinding. Verwachtingsvol naar dat wat komen gaat. Hopend op verrassingen, op moois, ontroerends, op iets gedurfds en commercieel interessants. Het is nog het meest te vergelijken met dat gevoel dat ik vroeger kreeg, een jaar of 16 oud, wanneer ik zelfstandig met de trein een dagje Amsterdam mocht doen. De trein is zo’n heerlijk vervoermiddel. Terwijl het landschap van mooie weilanden en vele huizen met bijna 300 km per uur aan je voorbij trekt kan je lekker uitgebreid mijmeren. Over hoe de boekenkasten er in die huizen uit zien en wat er op het nachtkastje ligt om te lezen. En nog verder fantaserend: hoe zijn die boeken daar gekomen? Waren het cadeaus? Een aanrader van een kennis wellicht? En wat gaat het boek met de eigenaar doen? Gaat het boek de lezer beroeren? Grijpen? Of wellicht koud laten? En waar reist het verhaal dat dit boek vertelt naartoe? Wordt het via de lezer gedeeld op zijn werk, met zijn familie of houdt de lezer het voor zichzelf, blijft het zijn geheim? Over reizen gesproken; zoals u wellicht weet heeft Lonely Planet de stad Amsterdam uitgeroepen tot de op één na beste stad om in 2013 te bezoeken. Zorg dus dat u de Lonely Planet Amsterdam volgend jaar op voorraad heeft! Speciaal voor Van Ditmar heeft Lonely Planet ook een landen tip-5 lijst opgesteld, deze vindt u op pagina’s 114-115. In dit eerste nummer van 2013 naast weer veel nieuwe titels nog wat suggesties voor Valentijsdag en goede voornemens op pagina 37 en in het kader van St Patricksday (17 maart 2013) belichten we de grootste auteurs van Ierland. Deze Ready to Read staat verder vol interviews met diverse auteurs, een mooie backlister voor een zeer scherpe prijs: Disgrace van JM Coetzee en erg leuk is het dat wij weer een artikel van een mooie boekhandel kunnen plaatsen, boekhandel Los in Bussum. Verder laten we deze editie een Engelse uitgever van businessboeken aan het woord, zijn er lekker veel Nederlandstalige strips en is er een mooie Art selectie. Veel plezier met uw inkoop en alvast een bijzonder mooi en succesvol voorjaar gewenst. Namens het Van Ditmar team Eveline van Zanten Manager Marketing & Communication

Wat lag er na Frankfurt eigenlijk op mijn nachtkastje?

Fish Change Direction in Cold Weather, 9780857861627 Een grappig en hartverwarmend boek dat je het vertrouwen geeft dat een happy ending wellicht toch mogelijk is. Once upon a time in a frozen city…. strangers fall in love, wishes come true, and life will never be the same again.

Book of the Month

January

‘‘For fans of Nick Hornby and David Nicholls, a brilliantly funny and touching new novel from the bestselling author of HOW TO TALK TO A WIDOWER.’ Maak kennis met Silver. Vierenveertig, gescheiden en woont alleen. Zijn eens gevierde muzikale carrière is nu een vage herinnering en zijn ex-vrouw staat op het punt een andere man te trouwen. Het enige goede ding in het leven van Silver is zijn voor Princeton-university klaargestoomde tienerdochter, Casey - en zij zou waarschijnlijk precies het tegenovergestelde over hem zeggen. Dus in de ogen van Silver zouden dingen beter kunnen gaan. . .een stuk beter. Dan laat Casey een bom vallen: ze is zwanger. Ja, het was haar eerste keer, en, nee, ze heeft het haar moeder niet verteld. Silver weet dat er dingen moeten veranderen, en wanneer hij ontdekt dat hij een fatale hartaandoening heeft wat betekent dat hij elk moment kan doodvallen, besluit hij dat het tijd is om een lijst met voornemens te maken: 1. 2. 3. 4.

Wees een betere vader Wees een beter mens Word verliefd Sterf

Maar de vraag is of het Silver lukt zijn leven weer op te bouwen, het respect van zijn familie terug te winnen, en er voor Casey te zijn nu zij hem het hardst nodig heeft of dat het voor hem te laat is. Laugh-out-loud grappig en tranentrekkend verdrietig, ONE LAST THING BEFORE I GO is weer een bewijs van Jonathan Tropper’s onberispelijke observatie talent, zijn perfecte stijl en zijn volkomen ongeëvenaarde gevoel voor humor.

Flying frightens m that the computer

M. R. Hall

David Clensy talks to the writer behind Judge John Deed and Kavanagh QC about his latest novel – which imagines the horror of an A380 coming down over the Severn estuary IMAGINE the scene: the mammoth silhouette of an Airbus A380 – the world’s largest passenger aircraft – swoops wildly over the Severn Estuary, but as you look to the skies the enormous aircraft jolts, and suddenly dives towards the river and the distinctive outline of the two Severn bridges. Inside the cockpit, the flight crew are fraught with panic, as they battle to gain control of the plane and save the lives of all on board – but the aircraft is now being controlled entirely by its flight computers; and the computers have crashed – in a big way. It sounds like a scene out of a disaster movie. One day it may be. But for now it is the extraordinary plot of the latest novel by M.R. Hall – the barrister turned writer best known as a screenwriter for shows such as Kavanagh QC, Dalziel and Pascoe and Judge John Deed. But M.R. Hall – Matthew to his friends – is also carving out an impressive career as a novelist, with three best-selling books already proving a hit with paperback readers, following the life of his favourite creation – Jenny Cooper, a fictional Bristol coroner. His latest novel, The Flight, is the fourth in the popular Jenny Cooper series. After the extraordinary fictional tragedy of an A380 going down over the Severn, with the death of all 600 passengers on board, it falls to Cooper to investigate what caused the accident. It turns out the computers were to blame – controlling the flight deck to such an extent that a software glitch proved fatal. But when I meet him in a coffee shop close to his home in Chepstow, just across the fictional accident scene estuary, the 44-year-old tells me that the vision – while purely a figment of his imagination – has some grounding in his real-world concerns over the latest aircraft computer technologies. ________________________

It sounds like a scene out of a disaster movie. ________________________

“Flying frightens me,” the former criminal barrister admits. “I’m a seriously nervous flyer, always have been. But I began to get increasingly nervous the more I heard about the A380 in particular. “Over the last few years Airbus has generally moved towards developing flight decks that are increasingly reliant on computers. “The A380 is the pinnacle. It has six on-board computers that


me But the truly terrifying thing is r is essentially in charge effectively fly the plane. The pilot on an A380 seems more like a sophisticated computer operator. “But the truly terrifying thing, to me, about the aircraft is that the computer is essentially in charge. Autopilot is the norm on these planes, and what’s more, the computers are designed to constantly override and improve pilot input. “So if the pilot wants to pull the nose of the plane up or down, beyond a certain defined angle, as I understand it the computer will override him, and simply not allow the manoeuvre. “I’m not wanting to be critical specifically of Airbus in the novel, but there are basically only two major aircraft manufacturers in the world, so to create a fictional one would be absurd. Boeing is still producing aircraft that are far less reliant on on-board computers, but it’s clear that this technology is likely to be the way the industry is going in the future. “I’ve spoken to lots of pilots before writing the book, and their concerns are very real. They are becoming increasingly terrified of what a computer glitch could mean if it occurred mid-flight, or in the most extreme cases they even worry about the potential for having a plane taken over by hi-tech terrorists who are able to tap into the on-board computers remotely. ________________________

Is there anybody on board who knows how to fly a plane? ________________________

“You can see why the manufacturers are choosing to go down the route of increasingly sophisticated on-board computers – it’s this idea of making aircraft safer by trying to remove the option of human error. But personally, I’d rather take my chances with the potential for human error than the potential for software glitches. “If a computer crashes in your office it’s a nuisance; a disgruntled call to tech support. If a computer crashes at 38,000ft, it’s a whole lot more serious. “At one time, in disaster movies the cliche was always ‘is there anybody on board who knows how to fly a plane?’ These days you can almost imagine the call would be: ‘Is anyone on board a software engineer?’” But it’s not just the new A380, which is partly made at Filton, that troubles Matthew. He tells me, as he nervously stirs his cappuccino, that glitches have already occurred on other so-called fly-by-wire aircraft, sometimes with disastrous consequences. “In 2008 there was a Qantas Airbus flying from Shanghai to Perth at 38,000ft, when the on-board computer misread its information and plummeted 200 metres with no warning. Nobody was killed on that occasion, though passengers were injured. “In 2010 there was a British Midland Airbus flying over the

Mediterranean when the aircraft simply started turning acutely towards the left for no apparent reason – it carried on turning left for 20 minutes before the pilot managed to overpower the grip of the on-board computer. “Then of course, there was the tragic Air France flight 447, the Airbus A330 that went down in 2009 over the Atlantic, killing all 216 passengers and 12 air crew. “The accident investigators have spoken about the formation of ice inside something called the pitot tubes, depriving the air speed sensors of forward-facing air pressure. “Essentially the plane’s computer would have believed it was flying at 60 knots rather than 600 knots, and automatically have instigated a stall warning at 40,000ft. “The inexperienced co-pilot who was on the flight deck at the time, responded to the false alarm signal, and increased altitude dramatically in response – effectively creating a stall, and meaning the aircraft would have simply dropped out of the sky.” It’s not a world away from the fictional scenario faced by West Country coroner Jenny Cooper in Matthew’s new book. “I’m very fond of the character,” he says. “I think she has more depth than some of my other characters, and I’m currently working to try to develop the books into a TV series. “I always thought she was too introspective a character to work on television, but since the emergence and popularity of the new introspective Scandinavian dramas – The Killing and Wallander – I’m beginning to think it’s a real possibility.” Written by David Clensy Feature Writer Bristol Evening Post

Author of Rubbernecker

Belinda Bauer

BELINDA BAUER grew up in England and South Africa. She has worked as a journalist and screenwriter, and her script THE LOCKER ROOM earned her the Carl Foreman/Bafta Award for Young British Screenwriters, an award that was presented to her by Sidney Poitier. She was a runner-up in the Rhys Davies Short Story Competition for “Mysterious Ways,” about a girl stranded on a desert island with 30,000 Bibles. Belinda Bauer now lives in Wales. BLACKLANDS is her first novel. Rubbernecker is an unusual title. Can you tell us what it means and why you chose it? A rubbernecker is someone who cranes to look at something – often something ghoulish, such as a car accident – in the hope of seeing blood, bodies and death. In Patrick’s case, he is obsessed by the death of his father and seeks to understand what happened to him in terms that he can understand. Did you attend anatomy classes as part of your research? Did you get to cut any of the bodies open? I went to the university in Cardiff and watched bodies being dissected. I had already watched detailed dissections online so that I could write about the exact methods the students use to dissect cadavers, but there were some details that I felt I could only get right in person. Those included the kinds of instruments used, the layout of the room, the procedures and jargon, the atmosphere among the students and – most importantly – the smell. I’ve very glad I did, because it’s an experience – and a smell – I’ll never forget. Your books have incredibly strong and complex male characters in them – Steven and Patrick being the two that spring to mind. Do you prefer to write about males?

Out of necessity, I concentrate on the characters who can tell my stories in the best possible way, whether they are male or female. In Darkside, for instance, I thought the story was going to be written with Lucy, Jonas’s wife, as the main voice, but the mechanics of the plot meant that if I stuck to Lucy’s point of view, I would not have been able to tell the story the way I wanted to, so I switched to Jonas as the protagonist. It’s something of a balancing act – what you gain and what you lose with each character. In the book I am writing now, the main character is a ten-year-old girl. Are you planning to revisit any of the characters in Rubbernecker, or is it a standalone? When I create a character I like, there is always the possibility that I will visit them again, but only if they suit the purpose of the story. I know that when I started Darkside, the reason I set it in Shipcott was because I wasn’t ready to leave Steven Lamb quite yet. I needed to see how he was, and I think the readers did too. Patrick in Rubbernecker is certainly a character I enjoyed spending time with, so I hope he and I will meet again sometime. I plan that my sixth book will include a character from one of the books I’ve already written, and I’m really looking forward to working with that person again. What strongly held belief did you have at eighteen that you do not have now? This is an amazing question. I’m going to ask everyone I know the same question! I was not an extreme or dogmatic teenager, and my views now are very similar to those I held at 18. I think I’m more tolerant now though. Your books are already genre-defying, but would you ever venture completely outside the confines of crime?

ISBN 9780593066935 € 18,95 PBC

I love crime because it’s so accommodating. Most of the stories I want to tell can easily be made to fit into the genre, because the crimes in my books are really just the catalyst for the stories I want to tell about people, situations and relationships. Crime shines a spotlight on people at moments of crisis, and forces them to act in extreme ways, which is so useful! However, I have always admired great sci-fi writers like Philip K. Dick and Arthur C. Clarke, and have some sci-fi stories that I would like write. But wherever and WHENEVER they take place, my stories will always be about people rather than technology, because people are what interest and move me.


A thrilling masterwork that will make you rethink your perceptions of life and death.

Hannah Griffiths about

Schroder by Amity Gaige

“When I first read Schroder I hadn’t heard of Amity Gaige. This is her third novel but her first to be published outside America. The novel tells the story of a seven day road trip Erik Schroder takes with his six year old daughter. But this isn’t an ordinary road trip: Schroder takes Meadow during a parental visit and becomes the subject of a massive police hunt. The story is based on truth -- Clark Rockefeller kidnapped his own daughter and went on the run with her. Gaige read about it and wondered what would drive a man to such a desperate act. In her hands the story is transformed into a work of art. It’s a novel that holds you close until its last pages and stays with you long after you’ve put it down. It’s a gripping and illuminating story about our need to belong. There was a moment around half way through reading Schroder when I was filled with a sense of dread that every editor knows: what if I don’t get to publish it? Faber is renowned for its list of dazzling international writers. From Kazuo Ishiguro to Barbara Kingsolver, Junot Diaz to Orhan Pamuk, the writers at Faber have made an impact on readers all over the world for many years. As an editor at this great publishing house, I am conscious that any new writer joining the list has to be able to sit comfortably alongside these great names. Amity Gaige is the real thing and SCHRODER is sure to work its way into the heart of readers for years to come.”

Dear Bookseller You will already know HarperCollins Publishers because you sell books from some of our key authors: Jonathan Franzen, Hilary Mantel, JRR Tolkien, Agatha Christie, Cathy Kelly and Paulo Coelho. Our books are distributed through our own warehouse based in Scotland, in addition to distributing books for publishers in the UK such as Simon & Schuster, Scholastic, Egmont and others. We implemented a new warehouse system in May this year and unfortunately some problems arose that had not been visible during the testing period. This meant that the delivery time for our customers was increased, amongst other issues such as part delivery of orders and shortages. We have been working hard with the company who installed the new system and are very comfortable that we now have a system that can get us back to our previous service levels. One of the main difficulties we are encountering is a substantial rise in the number of queries coming in to our customer service centre. Our staff tried to answer these but because of the volume and the knowledge of our new system it has taken longer to reply than we would have liked. This has caused significant frustration to all of our customers and as a business we have put significant additional resource to sort this short term problem. We would like to take this opportunity to let you know that Van Ditmar was working hard with us throughout this time to ensure on-time supply of books to you, and that delays and lack of facts about when these books would arrive was not their fault. I am confident that the worst is behind us and ensure you that all orders, especially in the busy gift period until the end of the year, are supplied to you on time, and I hope you will forgive us for our earlier problems this year. Yours sincerely

Book of the Month

February ‘A passion so rare, a murder so strange’ A phenomenal new voice in Vic-lit

We schrijven het jaar 1865. Gwen Carrick staat terecht in de Old Bailey (Het Centrale Strafhof in Engeland en Wales, red.) voor moord. Het slachtoffer is Edward Scales, zakenman, vlinderverzamelaar, respectabele man. Hij is de man op wie Gwen verliefd werd tien jaar geleden. Wees niet misleid door haar gestalte, door haar - opmerkelijke - beheersing van de taal, door haar aandringen op onschuld. Dit, heren, is een in het nauw gedreven sluwe vrouw, die niet stopt tot zij krijgt wat ze wilt. Tegen de achtergrond van landhuizen in Cornwall tot aan de regenwouden van Brazilië stelt The Specimen aan de kaak of Gwen werkelijk de man die ze liefhad kon vermoorden. Het laat zien welke prijs een jonge onafhankelijke vrouw moet betalen door een onorthodox leven te willen leiden.

The Specimen speelt zich af in de Victoriaanse tijd, in een krachtenveld waarin spiritualiteit en Darwinisme, een beleefde samenleving en de drang naar clandestiene liefde allen een rol spelen. Gwen en Edward’s verhaal is een aangrijpend melodrama, een meeslepend liefdesverhaal en een spannende detective, dat lezers weet te boeien tot de laatste zinderende pagina. About the Author Martha Lea werd geboren in Leicester in 1970 en heeft een BA in Fine Art van Falmouth School of Art & Design. Ze woont met haar partner en twee kinderen. The Specimen is haar eerste roman.

For the fans of Fingersmith by Sarah Waters, The Observations by Jane Harris, The woman in White by Wilkie Collins, The Crimson Petal and the White by Michel Faber and the Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

I always wanted to be a journalist

Oliver Burkeman

Oliver Burkeman is a feature writer for The Guardian newspaper. He is a winner of the Foreign Press Association’s Young Journalist of the Year award, and has been shortlisted for the Orwell Prize. He writes a popular weekly column on psychology, This Column Will Change Your Life, and has reported from London, Washington and New York.

What inspired you to write The Antidote? For several years, I’d been writing a weekly column in The Guardian on self-help and popular psychology, testing out the recommendations of various gurus -- to find out what worked, and being fairly rude about all the many things that didn’t. After a while, it began to dawn on me that most of the happiness techniques that actually worked had something in common: they didn’t involve trying to eliminate negativity, trying to guarantee success, or trying to achieve perfect security or certainty; instead, they were concerned with trying to make space for negative feelings, and embracing uncertainty and failure. Most of the techniques that didn’t work, meanwhile, involved some variety of “positive thinking”. Then I discovered that this idea, about embracing negativity instead of shunning it, goes back millennia, to the earliest traditions of philosophy and spirituality. At that point I had to know more -- though I certainly didn’t realise where that journey would take me. (Examples: on a weeklong silent meditation retreat in the middle of a forest, and to one of the most dangerous neighbourhoods in Mexico City…) The Antidote is being published in Dutch, will you be visiting Holland anytime soon? I have no specific plans right now, but I’d like to. I’ve spent some wonderful holidays there in the past. I’d love to find out more about the role of pessimism and optimism in Dutch culture: the Netherlands tends to score very highly in international happiness surveys, but I don’t think that’s because it’s a nation of grinning super-optimists who never allow themselves a negative thought. So I’m hopeful that my outlook might resonate there. How did you become a writer for The Guardian? I’d always wanted to be a journalist. Even when I was an eightyear-old in school I spent my spare time making “newspapers” which I forced my friends to read. After studying social and political sciences at university, I managed to get some work experience at the Guardian, and then some casual work as a copy-editor. I basically remained on the premises until they felt they had to give me some kind of job, I think…

by the culture of positive thinking – the gurus who tell you that you should just decide to be cheerful, or the employers who insist that you formulate detailed goals for your work. (One of the findings I came across in the course of researching my book is that goal-setting can often do more harm than good.) But even incurable optimists could benefit from exploring what I call the “negative path” to happiness. It’s not just that it’s “OK” to be negative -- it’s that pessimism and uncertainty and insecurity, used wisely, can sometimes be a more fruitful route to happiness and success. What would surprise most people to learn about you? Sometimes people assume that I must be a perfect exemplar of all the great wisdom about happiness I’ve discovered as I researched the book. But that’s ridiculous, of course -- if I was the kind of person who doesn’t get easily worried or stressed or sad, I suspect I’d never have been motivated to write this kind of book in the first place. And I’m still prone to all such things. The difference now is that I have more tools readily at hand to address them. And I don’t necessarily assume it’s best to try to stamp them out. If you could have any five people over for dinner, who would they be? Is this one of those questions about famous people through history, living or dead? If so, then I’d obviously like to invite some of the historical figures I write about in The Antidote, to find out what they were really like: Seneca and Epictetus, the Stoics, who advocated focusing on the worst case scenario, instead of the best, as a way of coping with anxiety and feeling grateful for life. John Keats, who championed “negative capability” – in essence, the ability to live with uncertainty. Lao Tzu, the founder of Taoism, although it’s not certain that he ever existed, so that might prove a problem. Perhaps the sixteenthcentury mystic Saint Teresa of Avila. But if you’re asking literally, I’d probably just invite my oldest friends. My happiness requirements are pretty simple in that respect.

Also available:

Who should buy/read your book? Everybody! They should buy multiple copies, too. But more seriously, several specific kinds of people. First, I think, anybody who’s ever found themselves feeling annoyed or pressurised

Aan ‘t woord Boekhandel Los Bussum

Misschien wel de leukste afdeling van de winkel _______________________________ Toen mij gevraagd werd de Engelse afdeling voor mijn rekening te nemen, was ik niet meteen wild enthousiast. Mijn voorgangers waren zeer thuis in de Engelse literatuur, terwijl ik na de middelbare school geen letter Engels meer gelezen had. Inmiddels ben ik erachter dat dit misschien wel de leukste afdeling van de winkel is. Alle nieuwe titels komen hier als eerste binnen, terwijl de rest van de winkel nog even moet wachten op de vertaling. Of het nu de nieuwe J.K. Rowling is of de laatste Jamie Oliver, het ligt hier altijd net iets eerder. Bovendien komen alle genres hier samen, waardoor het een klein boekwinkeltje op zichzelf wordt. Los heeft een zeer ruim assortiment. Natuurlijk veel literatuur en thrillers, maar ook steeds meer kinderboeken voor alle leeftijden, zelfs Dolfje Weerwolfje en Pluk van de Petteflet vind je hier in het Engels. Leerlingen van de middelbare school ontdekken dat er veel leuks te lezen is voor hun lijst. Regelmatig komen ze binnen met een literatuurlijst van school vol oude titels en willen dan een zo dun mogelijk boek of een boek waar al een film van is, maar gaan dan toch met een nieuwe titel de winkel uit, omdat er tegenwoordig zoveel leuke en goede boeken in het Young Adult-genre verschijnen. Lezen de leraren ook weer eens wat nieuws.. Voor iedereen is hier wel iets te vinden, we hebben behoorlijk veel. We verkopen steeds meer managementboeken en ook op non-fictiegebied neemt het aantal titels toe. Daar mag nu wel weer een plank extra komen. Het aanbod is groot. Na een tijdje staan de kasten, ondanks goede verkoop, weer veel te vol. Gelukkig komt Wijnand regelmatig langs om de boel onverbiddelijk te schonen. Dat is niet alleen hard nodig, maar nog gezellig ook! Overigens lees ik nu wel weer graag in het Engels, soms gaat het er niets boven het origineel. Mascha Sluijter Boekhandel LOS Bussum

Publisher’s Corner

Wiley Na een aantal jaar op de redactie van een academische uitgeverij in Engeland werk ik nu ruim een jaar als vertegenwoordiger voor Wiley. Het was weer even inkomen om Nederlands te spreken en schrijven met klanten, maar je moedertaal vergeet je niet. Ook soms van beide kanten even lekker direct zijn; dat kan met Nederlanders onder elkaar. Dan kun je meteen verder met de ideeën die wel mogelijk zijn. We weten allemaal dat de Nederlandse boekenmarkt onder druk staat, maar er is nog genoeg om enthousiast over te raken. Ik zie boekverkopers hun niche omarmen en daar in te groeien. Zij pakken de kansen waar gaten in de markt zijn gevallen en geven de extra service die klanten verlangen. Voor het hoge niveau Engelstalige boeken is de Nederlandse markt al jaren sterk. Wiley’s fondsen in finance, (dier)geneeskunde en de andere harde wetenschappen hebben een vaste plaats verworven in dit land. Welbekend zijn waarschijnlijk ook onze For Dummies boeken. Nu meer dan twintig jaar actief en met meer dan 5000 titels verschenen, is er een geel/zwart boek voor iedereen. Om zo’n opvallend boek in de kast zetten, moeten mensen soms even een drempel over. Er is echter niet alleen een For Dummies boek over vrijwel ieder mogelijk onderwerp, maar ook voor ieder niveau. Denk bijvoorbeeld aan ‘Stargazing’ en ‘Astronomy’, bijna hetzelfde en toch niet! Dan zijn er de Capstone business boeken met felgekleurde kaften en uitnodigende titels zoals: ‘What’s Stopping you?’ en ‘Get Productive!’ De nuchtere Nederlander laat zich niet stoppen en heeft geen schop onder zijn kont nodig, toch? Of laten ze niet merken soms ook niet te weten waar ze moeten beginnen met een vol bureau en een nog vollere inbox? Praktisch advies van internationale experts is precies wat mensen met die goede voornemens nodig hebben. Een gelukkig en gezond 2013 toegewenst Renée Takken

It's A Magical Time for R

Hugh Howey

From one bookseller to another, good day. My name is Hugh Howey, and six months ago I was sitting where you are right now. Well, metaphorically. The bookstore I worked in was located here in the United States. Half a year ago, I was unboxing new releases, sorting through exciting advance copies, and reading letters just like this one. Which makes it surreal to now be asked to write one! As an avid reader, working around books was a dream job for me. But I harbored another secret dream: I wanted to be a bestselling author. I’ve been writing for a long time, always on the side as I worked other jobs to pay the bills. Maybe it was from being surrounded by great literature all day, but I never thought I stood a chance. And so rather than seek out a major publisher, I produced my stories myself. I was happy to have a few hundred readers. And then something marvelous happened: Last summer I released a short story called Wool, and word of mouth began to spread this work like wildfire. By October, I noticed Wool was outselling all my other works combined. So I wrote the rest of the series, and it has gone on to sell over 200,000 copies around the globe. Suddenly, agents and publishers were getting in touch, and Ridley Scott came along and secured the film rights. And then the highlight of my adventure thus far: Random House won a heated auction in order to bring the story to you. I couldn’t be more thrilled to have Wool in your hands. I get emails all the time from people who have read the ebooks. They often ask how much it would cost to get a signed copy shipped to them, and I have to break the sad news of the exorbitant postage. But now, I can tell them to just hold out a moment. The book is making its way to them. And if I have my way, I’ll soon follow. I wish you and your bookstore all the best this holiday season. It’s a magical time for readers, publishers, and booksellers. And I hope you enjoy Wool. It was written by a bookseller with the silly dream of one day becoming a bestselling author. It goes to show that dreams do indeed come true. – Hugh Howey Tell us how you feel about your self-publishing success story in three words? Dreams. Come. True. How did you find the challenges and the benefits of self-publishing? How has the partnership with Random House assisted?


Readers, Publishers and Booksellers

The benefits of self-publishing seem to perfectly match the challenges, like the two go hand-in-hand. If it were easy, the satisfaction of success wouldn’t be nearly as great. It’s like climbing a mountain. You wear yourself out getting to the summit, and then you have this breathless, wheezy, dizzy high of accomplishment. Before waking up the next morning to a blank sheet of paper and the drive to do it all over again! As for the partnership with Random House, it’s been an absolute dream. Working with dedicated and brilliant editors has taken the work to the next level. But it’s the ability to reach more readers than ever before that really excites me. Random House has expressed a broad appreciation for the work and a strong commitment to launching the book in a big way. I couldn’t have landed in more capable and expert hands. Did you ever think this kind of success would come when you first put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard)? Never. I began writing simply to entertain my wife and a handful of friends. I’ll never forget how difficult it was back then to convince even family members to give my works a go. The assumption seemed to be that if they knew the person creating the art, it must not be very good. Great works are made by people we have no contact with, hermits ensconced in lonely little cabins, right? They come from people who are inaccessible and who wear their trousers differently. I think I believed this myself until recently. I understood what an uphill battle it would be to try and reach a wider audience, and so I never gave myself much of a chance, never even allowed myself to dream of something like this. Because of that, this journey has felt even more startling. The fact that strangers are now reading and enjoying my stories is unbelievable. It’s far more than I ever imagined for myself. And then to have someone like Ridley Scott come along and take interest in turning this into a film . . . one simply has to shake their head in wonder.

over several weeks. It clocks in at 12,000 words, which doesn’t quite qualify it as a novella. When the sales took off and reviewers began clamouring for more, I undertook the rest of the books, which took three months to write and revise. This was while I had a full-time job, which meant getting up at ridiculous hours in order to cram 6 to 8 hours of writing on top of everything else I had going on. My wife, to say the least, worried for my health. The fact that she’s a psychologist should have probably given me pause, but I was too focused on writing at the time to make out what she was saying. What do readers have in store for them with your next book? More surprises. My second-favourite thing in the entire world is a reader who thinks they know what’s going on. My absolute favourite thing is that same reader a paragraph or two later. Any other books in the making? A few, yeah! I have a zombie book releasing soon that’s unlike anything else out there. It’s a series of brief literary works told from the perspective of the infected. The events take place in New York City, a one-time home of mine. Living in lower Manhattan during the events of 9/11 left me with some demons I have yet to excise. I don’t know that I ever will, but this zombie book is my attempt to deal with those events. It won’t be an easy book to read. It certainly hasn’t been an easy one to write. Once it’s out, I’ll return to the world of Wool to wrap up that saga. And then I have a new world to create called Sand. I think readers are going to really enjoy where that series takes them. It’s bleak enough to make the world within the silo look like Shangri-La!

What is it like being the man on everyone’s lips at the moment? Has life changed much, and if so, how? It’s surreal. Literally, as in, none of this feels real at all. It often feels like it’s happening to someone else, and I’m just watching it unfold from a block away. The biggest change has been in my ‘day job’. Instead of shelving books and dusting fixtures at the bookstore, I now spend my non-writing hours replying to e-mails and PR inquiries. The upgrade here is the ability to work in my underwear, something they severely frowned upon at my last job. How long did it take you to write Wool? The original novelette (what has become Wool 1) was written

‘The mysterious new masterpiece from J.M. Coetzee’ Een man en een jongen komen na een lange reis over de oceanen aan in een nieuw land. Zij krijgen een naam en leeftijd toegewezen, leren Spaans, de taal van hun nieuwe vaderland en verhuizen als Simon en David naar Novilla, waar zij beleefd maar doorgaans onvriendelijk behandeld worden door de autoriteiten. Simon vindt werk in een graansilo. Het lichamelijk werk valt hem zwaar maar de hartelijkheid van zijn collegas en de filosofische gesprekken over de waardigheid van arbeid in de pauzes maken veel goed. Nu moet Simon nog zorgen dat hij de moeder van de jongen vindt. Hoewel hij net als iedereen die aankomt in dit nieuwe land een leeg geheugen lijkt te hebben, is hij ervan overtuigd dat hij haar zal herkennen wanneer hij haar ziet. En inderdaad, tijdens een wandeling met de jongen op het platteland vangt Simon de blik van een vrouw waarvan hij zeker weet is dat zij Davids moeder is, en slaagt erin haar te overtuigen deze rol op zich te nemen. Al snel beseft Davids moeder dat hij een uitzonderlijk kind is, een slimme, dromerige jongen met zeer ongebruikelijke ideeën over de wereld. Maar het schoolhoofd ziet een opstandige kant in hem en dringt erop aan hem naar een speciale school ver weg te sturen. Zijn moeder weigert hem weg te brengen, en het is Simon die de auto bestuurt als het drietal vlucht over de bergen.

The Childhood of Jesus is een mooie, diepzinnige en vooral verrassende roman van een zeer groot schrijver.

About the Author J.M. Coetzee’s work includes Waiting For the Barbarians, Life & Times of Michael K, Boyhood, Youth, Summertime, Disgrace and Diary of a Bad Year. He was the first author to win the Booker Prize twice and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2003.

The Beauty of Murder A.K. Benedict February • 9781409144526 TPB • H

Stephen Killigan has been cold since the day he came to Cambridge University as a junior lecturer. When he stumbles across the body of a missing beauty queen, he thinks he’s found the reason. But when the police go to retrieve the body and find no trace, Killigan has found a problem – and a killer – that is the very opposite of reason. Killigan’s unwitting entry into Jackamore Glass’s sinister world will lead him on a trail of tattooists, philosophers, cadavers and scholars of a deadly beauty.

A little letter about The Beauty of Murder . . .

q ‘It might be with some trepidation that you approach a book called The Beauty of Murder. Yes, it’s a little dark, a little strange . . . but trust me, it’s a wonderful journey and not quite like any other trip you’ve been on . . .

s What happens when a beauty queen missing for a year turns up dead – but with a corpse barely cold? And then that body vanishes again? It would be tricky enough on its own – but then another body turns up – decomposed as if it’s been buried a year – but the victim was only abducted the day before. Stephen Killigan, a young lecturer new to Cambridge is our guide through all this. When he finds the beauty queen’s body, he’s slowly drawn into a game being played by a most unusual villain.

g Jackamore Grass is a genius. Or a sociopath. Or perhaps both. A gifted medic in his own day at Cambridge, it’s when he discovers another skill that life changes for him. He can slip between the centuries – and suddenly, he has all the time in the world to play his twisted games. But being part magician, part killer can get boring when there’s no-one to play with. Then he finds Stephen Killigan . . .

c The novel can be described as The Discovery of Witches meets The Rivers of London, or The Time Traveller’s Wife crossed with John Connolly. But it’s more itself than any of these comparisons suggest. Full of tricks, tattoos, broken hearts and healing scars, it’s about the people you love, the ones that you lose and how every secret is hidden somewhere in the tangled thread of time, just waiting for us to find it again.’ Genevieve Pegg, Editor July 2012

St. Patrick’s Day is de nationale feestdag van Ierland, Noord-Ierland, Montserrat en de Canadese provincies Newfoundland en Labrador. De feestdag valt op 17 maart, waarbij men de beschermheilige van het land, Sint-Patricius herdenkt. Overal in Ierland wordt dit uitbundig gevierd met openluchtconcerten, kermis, een grote optocht en vuurwerk bij de rivier de Liffey in Dublin. Groen is de kleur die met het festival wordt geassocieerd. Feestgangers dragen meestal groene kleding (dat is een traditie en wie dat niet doet kan geknepen worden) en men kan bijvoorbeeld groen bier kopen op deze dag. St. Patrick’s Day wordt wereldwijd gevierd, met name in de landen waar veel Ieren naartoe zijn geëmigreerd, voornamelijk de VS en Australië. St. Patrick’s Day is niet alleen verbonden aan de Ierse cultuur, maar is ook een christelijk feest dat door de Katholieke kerk, de Ierse Kerk en andere Anglicaanse Kerken gevierd wordt.

Want to know where’s ho to watch, as revealed in #1 – Sri Lanka

ISBN 9781741797008 € 21,95 Why go in 2013? Serenity returns to Serendib. Dubbed serendib – the origin of the word serendipity – by seafaring Arab traders centuries ago, Sri Lanka has been anything but serene in recent decades. Battered tragically by the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami and wracked by civil war from 1983 to 2009, many areas of South Asia’s most compact country have remained off limits to even the most intrepid traveller. Now the conflict is over, investment is fuelling the tourism industry, and visitor numbers are steadily increasing. Prices are affordable and with low cost flights from the convenient travel hub of Bangkok, Sri Lanka is emerging as one of the planet’s best-value destinations.

#2 – Montenegro

ISBN 9781741794403 € 19,95 Why go in 2013? Taming a wild beauty. When it comes to tourism, Montenegro is a country on the fast track to superstardom. Nature has been as prolific and creative here as Picasso in his prime, producing such iconic draws as the bewitching Bay of Kotor and the buzzy beaches along its Riviera. But be sure to pack a pair of hiking boots along with your swimsuit, for Montenegro’s beauty is no less intense in the wild and rugged interior. Fierce mountains loom over velvety valleys, glacial lakes, precipitous canyons and dreamy villages where life unfolds much the way it has throughout history.

ambitious tourism project. But developers believe the gamble will pay off and pull in unprecedented tourist numbers. And if the trains don’t do it for you, the fantastic chocolate or amazing wildlife will.

#5 – Slovakia

ISBN 9781741799187 € 22,95 Why go in 2013? To enjoy the great outdoors. Think South Korea is just another high-density Asian country filled with towers, temples and traffic? Think again. Without fanfare, South Korea has quietly developed into an outdoor recreation destination. Though not quite undiscovered, few people outside the Hermit Kingdom know about it. That anonymity will likely fade away in 2013 as the country bursts onto the world stage with three international sporting events.

#4 – Ecuador

ISBN 9781741798098 € 22,95 Why go in 2013? Making tracks. There’s a buzz in the Andean air of Ecuador this year – or, rather, a klaxon blast or three. The country’s railway network, almost totally closed down in the years following the devastating El Niño – induced floods of the 1990s, is scheduled to radically revamp in 2013. A massive $250 million is rebuilding train lines between increasingly cosmopolitan Quito in the mountains and the coastal port of Guayaquil. Tracks will also connect Ecuador’s famed 5900m – high volcano Cotopaxi and the Nariz del Diablo (Devil’s Nose), claiming the steepest (and most hair-raising) stretch of railway in the Western world. Joining up these lofty locales by track wasn’t easy – it’s not for nothing that the Ecuadorians dub their railway the most difficult train in the world – and the restoration has been Ecuador’s most

ISBN 9781741048575 € 20,95 Why go in 2013? Country of culture. Happy 20th birthday, Slovakia. Two decades on from the Velvet Revolution that saw the country separate from its Czech neighbour, it has galvanised to form one of the continent’s fastest-growing economies. Slovakia’s ski centres are looking spruced-up of recent years, but snow-sports are merely the gateway to a host of high altitude activities in this mountainous land, like tracking some of Europe’s last major wolf populations, or tasting Slovak wines in timeless villages. For more travel trends and insider knowledge – check out Lonely Planet’s Best In Travel 2013, and don’t forget to stock up on ever-popular destinations like Thailand, Italy and Indonesia this January.
