Maartje Wortel Goldfish and Concrete

- The sea is everywhere. In Tilburg too.
- I don’t think I really understand that.
- You don’t need to. You just have to dive in. To the story and the sea.

Goldfish and Concrete is Maartje Wortel at her best: a never-ending story, a dazzling ballad, a pamphlet-like contemplation, a holistic chain. You can’t explain this story. You don’t need to. You just have to dive in.

'Searching and vulnerable and untethered, Goldfish and Concrete is a book that knows stories connect strangers the same way that love connects lovers. With this knowledge it somehow, impossibly, listens to the reader. Maartje Wortel is a marvelous and tender companion.' - Catherine Lacey, author of Nobody Is Ever Missing

Maartje Wortel was born in Eemnes. She was expelled from the School of Journalism for making up too much. In the meantime, as a writer, she has become one of the most characteristic voices of her generation. She received the Anton Wachter prize for her debut novel Dit is jouw huis (This Is Your House), and her most recent novel, IJstijd (The Glacial Era) won the BNG Literary Prize.
