de stille stad

Film edition QUOTE: “Threes Anna is a true master in the description of small and big disappointments” **** Janet Luis Threes Anna shows with poetical and deadly accuracy how fishes die when you stab your knife into them, how fast the light in their eyes extinguishes when you lift them out of the water, how lonely one can be in a city with over a million inhabitants

The first Dutch novel on mobile phone or palm-pilot (january 2005), DOWNLOAD NOVEL. QUOTES: – ‘Ladies, no matter if you love motorcycles or children: read this novel!’ – ‘Fluent, strong dialogues’ – ‘…an almost perfect symbiose of the author’s style en the object of desire: the motorcycle! […] In her preference for short, clear phrases and now and then a strong swearword, Anna’s best scenes resemble those of Bukowski. Motormoeder is nearly a genre in itself, somewhere between soap and elegant whiskeyprose’
