Familieziek - Family Sick.
Hardcover. In good condition.

Threatened by the Cold War, a boy is groomed for an evil future. He learns to write and the bomb ticks over the table. The father, a man damaged by the war, increasingly involves his son in his delusional world. The boy is the silent witness to absurd scenes. Madness rages through the house; the mother and daughters form a skeptical chorus that comments on the events. Just like in Nathan Sid and Indische Duinen, in Familieziek a family from the colonies appears, who are trying to build a new life in the Netherlands.
