This is a collection of 3 short stories by Nescio, dating from the early 1900’s. I loved the book.
There is a lot of analysis available in other places of the various themes in the book. For me the most powerful were the melancholic sadness and the beautiful descriptions of Holland in earlier times.
The book mainly describes the bourgeois class but also talks about to the lower classes and farmers (“de pummels”). Lovely, lovely!
This book was a gift to my parents, from November 15, 1991 when my father had broken his leg. He brought it to Arlington when he came to take care of Nora.
