With his customary intelligence, erudition and sheer passion for the world we live in, Cees Nooteboom has achieved the impossible: to say something new about the ageless city about which everything has been said
His writing is lyrical and densely textured. He is a poet of time and memory.
He writes in a voice that blends the acuity of Martha Gellhorn with the meditative grace of W.G. Sebald
