Another story about a Dutch small town in the 1950 - or actually two stories: first a more general description of typical life in that town (the authors youth as a prototype example) - then a story about a woman who physically escaped the "bad" part of town, lived in the better part - but realized her origin will always determine her thoughts and feelings. I'm not fully convinced about such a general rule.

Dit boek is voor mij heel herkenbaar omdat De Steile Helling, 3 jaar lang, toen ik nog op school zat in Maassluis, mijn dagelijkse martelgang was, vooral omhoog uiteraard.
Verder het bekrompen Christelijke milieu, de rijmpjes, de versjes, de omgang, de hiërarchie in de familie, alles heel herkenbaar.
Bovendien is Maarten mijn heef.
