Celebrate the publication of Nescio’s Amsterdam Stories

Amsterdam Stories Cover

For the very first time, Amsterdam is in New York!

Nescio, the pseudonym for successful banker and family man J.H.F. Grönloh, has long been considered the finest of Dutch prose writers. But his powerful passages on the landscapes of the Netherlands and the very pulse of the city of Amsterdam have remained unavailable to English speaking readers. Until now.

Join NYRB Classics in celebrating a major literary event: the publication of Nescio’s Amsterdam Stories, translated from the Dutch by Damion Searls, and with an introduction by acclaimed novelist Joseph O’Neill.

On April 16, at 7:30 PM, Damion Searls and Joseph O’Neill will read from and discuss Amsterdam Stories at:

Greenlight Bookstore
686 Fulton Street (at South Portland)
Brooklyn, NY 11217
718.246.0200
Free and Open to the Public.

On April 24, at 7 PM, Damion Searls will read from and discuss Amsterdam Stories at:

192 Books
192 10th Avenue at 21st Street
New York City
This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited, so please call 212.255.4022 to make a reservation.

New York may no longer be Dutch, but this Dutch author is well worth celebrating—and we hope you’ll join us in doing just that!

And, please check the NYRB Calendar for events with Damion in Boston and the Bay Area.
