The Blessed Rita
Illustrated paper covered boards. Issued without dust jacket. Includes publisher’s publicity sheet. *** Wieringa is one of the most successful and versatile authors currently writing in Dutch. After his exploration of foreign countries and geo-political issues in his previous novels (the excellent These are the Names and the International Booker Prize nominated The Death of Murat Idrissi), he turns his view inwards and focuses on a small town in the eastern Netherlands where a dealer in Nazi paraphernalia is pushed into an act of violence. *** Translated from the Dutch by Sam Garrett. Originally published in 2017 as De heilige Rita.
