A Traveller through Time. The Work of Marcel Möring
(Daan Cartens) The Low Countries - 1998, № 6, pp. 170-177
With his first novel, ‘Mendel's Legacy', Marcel Möring was at once hailed by Dutch critics as a major author, one who dared to raise wide-ranging problems. They liked the way he did not go for ironic solutions but rather remained weighty and serious, particularly because stylistically he was anything but heavy-going. Möring is not an author who relies on disentangling relationships, or pinning down the spirit of the age, though he certainly does deal with these topics. But his novels look beyond this, they are attempts at defining man's place in history. (with a translated extract from ‘In Babylon' by Marcel Möring).
