About this author

Margreet de Heer lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, with her husband Yiri T. Kohl and two cats. A long time ago, she studied Theology at the University of Amsterdam, but through divine intervention she ended up being a comic artist. She worked at the famous comic store Lambiek from 2000 until 2005, and wrote a book about Dutch comics together with Kees Kousemaker.

Since 2005 she is a full-time comic artist producing a wide range of work, from children's comics in magazines to cartoons at business conferences.

Sommige ideeën waren nieuw voor me, sommige kende ik al. De schrijfstijl is her en der wat warrig en vermoeiend. Ik las het e-book, dat erg slecht is vormgegeven (heel veel afbr-ekin-gen op de verk-eerd-e plaatsen!).
Maar al met al toch een boek dat u

Remarkably open and up-to-date, written in very English upperclass but also scientific style. Shocking to read of totally sex-ignorant women who killed themselves, traumatized on their wedding night. Hilarious fact: all the tagged-on "editor's notes" ...more

“I got interested in the idea that love is often used as a kind of blanket explanation for things. I mean, battered wives, for instance: "Why did you go back to him?" "Oh, I loved him." "Why did you embezzle fifteen million pounds and run away to the other side of the world?" "Oh, well, because I was in love." All that and then you don't ask anything else. I thought if I just say, these people needed love and they found it, then it kind of explained it away. I wanted to look at their behaviour and how love can inspire the best and the very worst in human behaviour but love itself is not behaviour. So I avoided the word 'love' until the very end and it's the last word in the novel. I wanted to explore what people will do when they're in such terrible need of love. If there was a big idea then that was it. Then, of course, I hope that if it's a story worth reading it's the characters themselves who make you want to read it, not the big idea. I don't think a big idea drives a novel usually. Something else has to engage you on a much more kind of personal level. ”
