Amsterdam Stories - Nescio

Sale price Price $8.00 Regular price Unit price  per 

Important Dutch writer alert! 'Nescio' a pen name meaning 'I don't know' in Latin (brilliant) wrote many stories in and of the Netherlands and its people. The author is the interesting character here; a businessman first, real name Frits Gronloh, he separated his writing and artistic life from what society wanted him to do. Fascinating for our own time as well, the push-pull of artistic vs. practical. This is a 'like new' copy picked up in Amsterdam. And its an NYRB!
