Herinneringen aan Godfried Bomans

By Godfried Bomans

Not really a book by Godfried Bomans, but rather a collection of memories jotted down by his family and friends after his death on December 22, 1971, about two years after I was born.

This book, thrust into my hands by a nice second-hand bookseller in Deventer when he saw me selecting Mijmeringen and Capriolen (both already read, but I haven’t typed up a notice — I’m horribly behind.), is both an interesting sketch of the life and times of the Netherlands in the first half of the twentieh century, and an interesting window onto the life of one of the best, most agile authors who worked in the Dutch language.
