Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the 1993 European Literary Prize. Hermann Mussert reflects on his unfulfilled life and loves in this starkly original novella. "He is a major European writer and The Following Story is a slender masterpiece." A.S. Byatt, "Daily Telegraph". Harvill Panther.

Synopsis:

Socrates is a former classics teacher at a lycee. Dr Strabon is a travel writer and Mussert is a misanthrope, but also the man behind the masks of these other incongruous alter egos. In this novel, Nooteboom illustrates the polarities and similarities of scientific reality and philosophical theory.

Synopsis:

Winner of the 1993 European Literary Prize, this strikingly original novel is textured with the humour, pathos and expansive knowledge that have become the hallmark of Hollands most popular writer.
