De Groei

You can find the contents page of Vrij Nederland, with a three-line extract from my story The Growing (or De Groei) here (at the top of page two). It’s all double single Dutch to me, but I like the sound of deze dingen dragen very much indeed and wonder if maybe I shouldn’t always be translated, immediately, into such musical non-sense. Its nursery rhyme feel is particularly suitable to this story as well. I’m teasing you non-Dutch speakers out there…
