Willem Elsschot, Cheese


 (vertaling van Paul Vincent), Granta Books (London)

This comic classic is both a delightful period piece and a timeless commentary on the pretensions of businessmen everywhere. What is more, it marks Edam's great moment in world literature.

Paul Vincent taught Dutch language and literature for many years at London University before becoming a full-time translator in 1980. He has translated various modern Dutch prose writers, including Harry Mulisch, Margriet de Moor, J. Bernlef and H.M. van den Brink.
