Description
In lives that span both world wars, married couple Ondine and Oscarke endeavor to get ahead and remain optimistic about the future, in this novel by Belgian literary great Louis Paul Boon (1912–79). They raise four children in a world grown increasingly mechanized and inhuman, constantly shadowed by the threat of the next war. In alternate chapters, Boon muses upon the impossibility of modern life; as the book progresses, his struggles—with writing and with his own life—come more and more to resemble those of his characters.

"Boon, one of the best realists we have, doesn't just represent things; he re-creates and offers it to us in a world of dream and magic in this long, sad, revolting, profound and beautiful book."—Jan Walravens
