I love the title and it intrigued me...who could hate tulips??? They are my favorite flower! An elderly man in Amsterdam answers a knock on his door to find his younger brother, whom he has not seen for 60 years. He tells him the story of their youth in war-time Amsterdam and how they were responsible for Anne Frank's family being captured. It was an interesting tale, but not great. The hatred for tulips came about as a result of having to eat tulip bulbs during the war when food was so scarce.
