Nice Boys in a Cold World. The Literary Work of Nescio
(Lieneke Frerichs) The Low Countries - 2005, № 13, pp. 218-226
A portrait of the Dutch Master of the unfinished and his highly original literary work. To Frerichs Nescio, who kept as quiet as possible about his writing, is essential a lyricist, a poet who writes prose. He's a romantic, too, and a cynic, and also a mystic in his own way. Like Chekhov and Turgenev, he is able to say complicated things with simple words. That for all that his work is so light and playful, so tender, moving and witty, is nothing short of miraculous. (with a translated extract from ‘Young Titans' by Nescio)
