The Happy Hunting Grounds Summary

The Happy Hunting Grounds by Nanne Tepper

Swift's Waterland soaks into McEwan's Cement Garden in this shocking and intense debut. Incest, madness & romance in the peat. Steeped in an unearthly and unsettling fenland landscape, relationships like that between Victor and his teen sister tend to mist up the perspectives of the 'normal'. Steamy, sensuous, atmospheric and ripe with longing and loneliness. From the no-man's-land between sea and soil in north-east Holland comes an outstanding book from an author who promises to be one of the first European literary stars of the new century.

The Happy Hunting Grounds Reviews

'An astonishing first novel. Here, out of the blue, we have a young man who proves to be a full blown writer from his first novel. The book has great style, tight structure and a haunting narrative. It's all there, complete full grown craftmanship... a born writer who will be one of the most important Dutch authors of his generation.' marcel moring, author of The Great Longing

About Nanne Tepper

Nanne Tepper was born in 1962. He and his writing all come from a peculiar, other-worldly corner of the country around Groningen. Imagine if Morrissey had come from the Fenlands, and you'll be half-way there. With this, his first book, he caused a sensation -- it is widely regarded in Holland as the best debut of the 1990s.
