Malma Station Lauded by Dutch Daily Newspaper 

Major Dutch daily newspaper Parool has given Malma Station, Alex Schulman’s bestselling novel, a fantastic review:

“In his second novel Malma Station, translated by Angélique de Kroon, Schulman again harks back to the traumas of his childhood. Different characters, different structure, but here too the core: insecure fathers, absent mothers, estranged children. Everything breathes impotence, unreachability and loss. And again there is an urn that takes a journey, in this case filled with the ashes of the woefully perished rabbit. […] Schulman puts himself heartbreakingly in the shoes of the small, melancholic Harriet, who constantly observes her father and wants to do everything to ‘better’ herself for him. […] The image of little Harriet at that Malma station bench, fighting back tears – crying, her father doesn’t like that – will  stay with me for a long time.”

The Dutch edition of Malma Station was published by De Bezige Bij on April 25th
