I hope everyone who celebrates had a lovely Easter and Holi, and a wonderful Eid al-Fitr to come next week to all who celebrate that!


  • All you Murakami fans will be thrilled that a new book has been announced for this autumn! Its title is The City and Its Uncertain Walls, and you can already pre-order it on abc.nl.
  • You can add Lauren Groff to the list of authors who’ve opened bookstores – all in the USA, though, sadly. Still, should you be in Florida perhaps you can stop in, before you drive off to Nashville for Ann Patchett’s store, and New York City for Emma Straub’s!
