How to say farewell to your mother?
Touching. Brutally honest.
A story about dying. About the, painful, relationship between mother and son – full of secrets and, as the story unfolds, more and more outpourings.
Van Dis has an audacious way of bidding his mother farewell. Called a novel, I assume it is for almost one hundred percent autobiographical. It for sure is a beautiful book by a great writer.
