Jorgen Hofmeester once had it all, but recently has been abandoned by his wife, watched his oldest daughter move away, lost his publishing job, and had his savings evaporate. At least he still has Tirza, his youngest daughter. But now she's going away to Africa, from where she'll never return.
Sam Garrett has translated a number of works by Arnon Grunberg and Tim Krabbe, among others. He won the Vondel Translation Prize for his translation of Frank Westerman's "Ararat."
