Product description


[B]y far the best thing produced by post-war Belgian literature. --Marnix Gijsen

His blitz technique produces its strangest effects in this little journal from the war and the post-war period, which booms crazily, as if Boon s typewriter had been rattling away like a machine-gun. --R. F. Lissens

This slender volume, originally published in 1947 but only now available in English for the first time, is an anti-epic. Boon is less interested in his own misfortunes than in those of the people he encounters along his way. --Jim Ruland

About the Author

Louis Paul Boon's (1912-1979) oeuvre spans several genres, including historical epics, newspaper columns, and scabrous novels such as Chapel Road and Summer in Termuren.

Paul Vincent is an award-winning translator of Dutch literature whose translation of Hendrik Marsman's Herinnering aan Holland earned the David Reid Poetry Translation Prize.
