Broken on the inside

Broken on the inside




Simon Hammelburg

In 1996 the book `Kaddish for Daisy was published. It was the debut novel of Simon Hammelburg concerning victims of the Holocaust and their children; a moving book about the second generation of war victims. The book received some critical acclaim but disappeared from bookshops shortly after publication and has not been available until now. Over a period of 18 years, Simon Hammelburg has continued to refine the original manuscript. Now the time has come to publish the final version in Dutch and English. The protagonist loses his wife in a car crash and while in mourning, he revisits places where together, they had found happiness. During this journey he connects with his peers, his brother and parents. Hammelburg not only describes these meetings but focuses on the many conversations held about the persecution in the camps, the need to stay in hiding, the hope for a new life in Israel and the loneliness in a post-war Europe too busy with its reconstruction. The tragedy of the Holocaust becomes tangible for those who have to live on. `I know all about it Daisy. And yet I cannot get angry. On the outside they have survived the Holocaust but inside, almost everything is broken and this shows on the outside. Not very pleasant but theres nothing to be done about it. `The power lies not so much in the inevitable anguish of the testimonials but more in the directness of a conversation between friends about something that cannot be captured in words by strangers.- Trouw Newspaper `A liberation, moving one to tears. - NRC Newspaper

Father, Mother




Herman Adèr

In this novella from Herman Adèr, the autobiographical elements are more obvious than in his previous novellas and stories. Yet, the first-person narrator is nowhere centre stage, the father and the mother remain the main characters all along. However, this detached manner of writing emphasizes how very evocative various scenes are. It could be said that the novella deals with Death. With the sudden death of the father, and with the slow, painful deterioration of the mother into her dementia, followed by death. Yet it is not a sad novella. This is caused by the indestructible cheerfulness that the mother possesses, which never leaves her, not even at the end of her life, when she hardly recognizes anyone and her world becomes ever more limited. It is as if people near her suffer more in the end than she does herself. The novella `Father, mother,' is translated from the Dutch novella `Vader, Moeder', also published by Johannes van Kessel.

Ibiza's child




Esther J. Ending

IBIZA, THE EIGHTIES. At the dawn of the techno and ecstasy era a lonely teenager sees her world going into a tailspin. Marianne, born on the island to a hippie mother and a drug dealing father, is trying to keep the pieces of her life together while one of her parents is in prison in Liverpool and the other is chasing her spiritual endeavours.
When an officer from the notorious Guardia Civil offers her a ride and shelter, Marianne becomes deeply fascinated by him. Embarking on a vodka and drug fueled journey, she tries to build a bridge between two worlds that weren't meant to meet. With her father's villa on the verge of confiscation and her mother's rickety sense of reason plummeting to unmanageable depths, Marianne's fascination for the Guardia grows into a dangerous obsession. She might well be driving not only herself but everyone close to her to the brink of destruction.
IBIZA'S CHILD is a novel about obsession - blinding, all-consuming obsession - and about a desperate search for parental love, a home, a fatherland. It is also a book about Ibiza: Ibiza as only those who were born on the island or have lived there for many years can know it. A genuine, bizarre, enigmatic, magnificent, deadly, never-to-be-encapsulated Ibiza.
ESTHER J. ENDING (1972) grew up on the island of Ibiza. She moved to the Netherlands permanently in 1994 and debuted in 2004 with the novel After Valentine, for which she received the prestigious Debut Prize. Her second novel Silent People came out in 2012.
'A dazzling novel straight from Ibiza's womb' THOMAS ROSENBOOM
'A revealing portrait of the dark side of Ibiza, very boldly written' JAN CREMER
'Extremely captivating and moving. Must read for everyone who loves Ibiza' SASKIA NOORT
'Fabulous novel! Absolute must read for everyone going to Ibiza' BART CHABOT
