"In Werther Nieland, young Elmer longs to make friends and tries to control the world around him by forming secret clubs, of which he is always the president. When he invites Werther to become a member, a game of attraction and repulsion begins. What follows is psychological masterpiece; Reve brilliantly conjures up a child's whole world, full of oppression and enchantment. Set during the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam, The Fall of the Boslowits Family sees a boy watch as the family of one of his friends slowly falls apart. This is a deceptively simple story imbued with subtle horror. These two classic novellas, from the giant of post-war Dutch literature Gerard Reve, have all of the uncanny atmosphere and the incisive, dark wit of his previous work The Evenings."--Provided by publisher.
