"Geheel De Uwe / Totus Tuus / Totally yours" is a mock-biography of the womanizer Salomon Schwartz, who is roughly modeled after Ischa Meijer, the Dutch public figure with whom author Connie Palmen had a long term relationship. She already documented that relationship and his sudden death in the autobiographical book "I.M.". This time, Palmen treats the same subject in a fictional manner and does it in a vastly superior way. Where "I.M." often sounded like pathetic navel gazing, "Geheel De Uwe" ...more

Na een jaar of 10 nog eens herlezen. Weer helemaal onder de indruk én nog meer onderlijnd :)

Fantastisch en afschuwelijk tegelijk. Ik heb het niet neer kunnen leggen en ik heb het niet meer op kunnen pakken. Ik verafschuwde de focus op de man, ook al is het verteld vanuit het perspectief van verschillende vrouwen, en ik ben er nog niet helemaal over uit of dat te vergeven is gezien het thema of de man in kwestie. Ik ben er ook nog niet over uit of ik überhaupt alle/de juiste thema's heb gevonden. Ondanks dit alles verschrikkelijk herkenbare psychologische analyses en gedachtegoed voor d ...more

Je weet dat je een fantastisch. Iel aan het lezen bent als je alles wilt weten over het sleutelpersonen, op zoek gaat en teleurgesteld wordt door de werkelijkheid.
Wat Mevrouw Palmen doet met de verschillende stemmen, brieven, romans en ingebedde structuur is fenomenaal. Niet alleen weet ze een prachtig portret te schetsen van een man via de stemmen van zijn vrouwen, ze brouwt ook een beeld van de post-bellummens, die gedoemd is gelukkig te zijn en daarom de schijn maar hoog houdt.

Ganz interessantes Buch, um einen etwas excentrischen Mann, der schwer unter seiner leblosen Kindheit leidet und 5 Frauen, die sich in ihn total verliebten und nach einer Zeit von ihm ohne Grund wieder verlassen werden.

В свободомислещия Амстердам от осемдесетте и деветдесетте години на миналия век живее един невероятен мъж, закоравял прелъстител, невъзможен, непоносим, чаровен, трогателен, вълнуващ. Преди внезапно да изчезне. Четири жени – проститутката Лили, монахинята Моника, актрисата Юдит и психоаналитичката Сар де Врис, разказват една след друга за връзката си с журналиста Саломон Шварц и заедно с това разнищват темите за вината, за свободната любов, за отношенията с родителите, за вярата в Бог – територи ...more

To be honest, it wasn't easy to go through with this book. It's just not one of these stories that you read simply because you have nothing better to do with your time. I had to invest a lot of thought into the story and, as one of the characters puts it, it was overwhelming to read so many truths in one place. I am impressed by the author's well-thought of description of certain psychological phenomena. Though the book doesn't offer solutions to the pains of the soul, it gave me better understa ...more

Книгата се оказа по-сериозна отколкото очаквах и отколкото обещаваше. На моменти е дори твърде много изтъкана от чист психологически анализ на човешкото поведение и твърде малко прилича на роман. На моменти е интересно, на моменти е досадна и ненужно научна. Все пак не е лоша.

“Die Hindernisse, die Menschen im Leben erfahren und die sie dazu veranlassen, zu glauben, sie könnten nicht das Leben führen, für das sie sehr wohl ausgerüstet wären, sind auch häufig Konstruktionen, um das Leben von sich fernzuhalten, um Talente nicht umsetzen und Ideale nicht verwirklichen zu müssen, um ein hehres Selbstbild aufrechtzuerhalten, das niemals an der Realität gemessen zu werden braucht, weil ein anderer für das eigene Unvermögen verantwortlich gemacht wird. Frauen und Männer, die sich aus dem immensen Angebot einen Partner ausgewählt haben, bei dem sie zu kurz kommen, weil er ihnen systematisch Zärtlichkeit, Begehren, Anerkennung, Unterstützung, Lob und grundlegendes Interesse vorenthält, können bequem an dem Idealbild festhalten, dass sie selbst reichlich mit allen diesen Qualitäten ausgestattet seien, bei ihrem Lebenspartner aber nicht damit zum Zuge kämen.” 1 likes
