Notes on family
Deltaworkers and the Dutch foundation for literature present a partial English translation of Jan van Tienen’s debut novel Nothing here remains.
A family is a blunt instrument that guides and moulds. It shapes one’s character, like a drunk man shapes a vase. There are intentions, but they are fickle and their effect is uncertain, and all the while the wheel keeps turning. Sometimes the clay starts to chip. Let’s study the fragments.
