Om Man on the Move

In January 1935, Rob leaves Holland for Cape Town, a young man thirsting for adventure and wanting above all to leave his family's suffocating hold on him behind. After a brutal stint in the diamond mines, he sails to Java to join the Dutch forces in their last stand against the invading Japanese. Here he finds Guus, a fellow countryman and the best friend he will ever have. Elegant, painterly and poetic, Man on the Move is an unforgettable portrait of friendship, and the heart-wrenching story of a journey away from family into lonely adulthood, through war and captivity.

'Compelling - reminiscent of Sartre's Nausea and Camus' The Outsider' Ulrich Baron, Die Zeit. 'A startlingly good novel' Gordon Darroch, Sunday Herald. 'One of those books of rare beauty that appear only once every few years' Gijsbert Kruithof, Haarlems Dagblad. 'A stark and impressive piece of storytelling' Nora Mahoney, Times Literary Supplement. 'A thoughtful, elegaic text to be savoured slowly, again and again' Roger Cox, Scotsman. 'A novel of extraordinary power and moral beauty' Paul Binding, Independent.
