About the Author: Ferdinand Bordewijk

Ferdinand Bordewijk was born in Amsterdam and studied law in Leiden. After graduation he worked at a Rotterdam law firm.

His first published work was a volume of poetry titled Paddestoelen ("Mushrooms") under the pen-name Ton Ven. It was not particularly well received.

His breakthrough came with the short novels Blokken ("Blocks", 1931), Knorrende Beesten ("Growling Animals", 1933) and Bint (1934), and two longer works Rood paleis ("Red Palace", 1936) and Karakter ("Character", 1938).

His style, which is terse and symbolic, is considered magic realism. He was awarded the P.C. Hooftprijs in 1953 and the Constantijn Huygens award in 1957.

Rotterdam, zwischen den Kriegen. Der ehrgeizige Jacob Katadreuffe arbeitet sich buchstäblich aus der Gosse bis in die oberste Etage einer Anwaltskanzlei. Doch ein Widersacher wirft ihn erbarmungslos immer wieder zurück: sein eigener Vater. Will er sich dafür rächen, dass Jacobs Mutter ihn einst zurückwies? Oder schickt der Vater den Sohn durch die harte Schule des Lebens, um ihn zu festigen?
