About the Author

Marga Minco (1920-2023) debuted with Bitter Herbs (1957), which was followed by other famous works such as The Fall (1983) and An Empty House (1967). She won the Vijverberg prize (1957), the Annie Romein Prize (1999), the Constantijn Huygen Prize (2005) and the P.C. Hooft Prize (2019) for her entire oeuvre.


The family’s incorrigible optimism enhances the nightmarish effect of this impressive little book. Moving and memorable.
*The Times Literary Supplement*

The simplicity and complete naiveté of Marga Minco’s account sharpen the impression it makes.
*The Jewish Chronicle*
