Rob van Essen wins Libris Literature Prize
Art & Literature Rob van Essen has with his novel The good son the Libris Literature Prize 2019 won, an amount of 50,000 euros for the best original Dutch novel of the past year. Jury chairman, Jet Bussemaker, has last night published in the Amstel Hotel in Amsterdam.

“With all its bizarre raids, grotesque twists, lines, and layers of Essens masterpiece us see and feel what it means to live in this time, with its abundance of leisure and luxury, with its robots and computers, a time in which everything and everyone is constantly monitored and, where necessary, from above, corrected", judged the jury, which over two hundred books.

In The good son of Essen (1963), two men, one of whom just his mother should be buried, looking for redemption and oblivion. They do that in a recognizable world, with ghastly features and a lot of strange events. The introduction of the basic income, ironic robots and loquacious self-propelled cars have a role to play.

The book is difficult to summarize and is also not just in a box stop. On the surface it's about a 60-year-old man who, together with an old friend, a road trip and along the way recalls memories of the past and to his recently deceased mother.
