about writing and reading

Connie Palmen reaches an important condition that's in my opinion is writing with authenticity and suffering, love and hate, culture (without false erudition) and respect with the commom people, especially with the reader: she writes in a simple and difficult way, touching the brain and the hearth, consolating, like a testimony of things i would like to write and that i also feel and think, and, eventually write. I think that a good book is the book that read us, a book that reads ourselves and Palmen is an example of a kind of writer very rare nowadays. Together with Alessandro Barico (Oceanomar, trad. portuguese) these two young authors are paradigms for me and for my formation of an honest reader and, perhaps, a future writer in this post modern era.

tragic, beautiful, deeply moving, enlightening

I read "The Laws" and Connie Palmen's other two books, "The Friendship" and "I.M.". They have all appeared with the German Publisher "Diogenes". Although I read them in German, I think I can comment on their beautiful prose. She walks a tight rope: intellectually she is so incredibly sharp that nothing escapes her objective analysis, while her intense sensibilities give every story a subjective, deeply emotional edge. Although her work is heavy-hearted, it is very satisfying and her message is positive.
Not all that great, but something new

I did not think it was such a great book. I was wandering where is she going with this, what is her point. It is describing a woman struggling in society, trying to find her soul, something that makes her happy, and it would not be a good Dutch book if at least not some sex was involved. As I said, some parts are well written and makes this book an interesting read.
