A Sun & Moon title.

* * *

In this, his first collection of poetry published in English, acclaimed Dutch poet and novelist Cees Nooteboom reveals a wry mix of surrealist-like images in dialogue with precise, realistic language. The result is a wonderful poetry of energy and wit. "The poet is a mill that turns the landscape to words."

Author of In the Dutch Mountains, Rituals, The Following Story, and many other books of fiction, travel, and non-fiction, Nooteboom is recognized as one of the major European authors. In 1993 he was awarded the European Literary Prize for the Best Novel, and in 1982 his Rituals was awarded the Pegasus Prize of Literature. He lives in Amsterdam.

Green Integer is publishing several new, older, and out-of-stock Sun & Moon, Green Integer, and other archived titles online. Some of these will appear for free, others will be priced affordably low.
