(Een goed nest)

Tessa De Loo
A Good Nest

Two sisters, late forties and early fifties, don’t get on. They see each other rarely. Their differences really come to the fore when Noor comes from Amsterdam to visit her older sister in the countryside with important news. It becomes a turbulent meeting: old feelings of jealousy and anger surface, old wounds are torn open, accusations fly. Then Noor finally tells the secret that could uproot their lives. Intense, powerful, insightful about human nature and sibling relations, this novel grips you from the first page. Simultaneously launched as a play in Amsterdam, starring Holland’s finest.
