Rituals

€ 13.95

In Rituals, Amsterdam of the fifties, sixties and seventies is viewed from the perspective of the capricious Inni Wintrop. An unintentional suicide survivor, the unexpected gift of life returned lends him the curiousity, and impartiality, to survey others' lives and rountines.

Inni's opposite, the one-eyed downhill skier Arnold Taads measures his life by the clock, while his disowned son Philip follows Japanese rituals which themselves seem to render his existence meaningless.

A novel for those who seek to unravel our mysterious, apparently directionless lives...

The author:
Cees Nooteboom, born in The Hague in 1933, has built up an imposing oeuvre made up of novels, collections of poetry, short stories and also travel stories, many of which were first published in magazines and newspapers. With his novel Rituals he won both the Dutch Bordewijk Prize and the Pegasus Prize for Literature,and The Following 'story was awarded the European Literature Prize in 1993. An inveterate traveller, Nooteboom lives by turns in Germany, 'spain and the Netherlands.
