Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first collection of stories by the best-selling Dutch writer to appear in English.

Synopsis:

In this collection of seventeen short stories, the German Occupation is relived in the post-war period through a series of vivid vignettes. The themes move from childhood anxieties and social embarrassment to the wish-fulfillment of a spinster and the romantic reverie of a young married woman. In another story a girl makes a desperate attempt to save her parents from transportation to a camp, and a Jewish wedding is held on the eve of Nazi victimization. Minco has a masterful talent for projecting the human predicament with subtle understatement. Her stories are poignant, and compassionate, her observations sharp. UNESCO Collection of Representative works.
