Fans of Hendrik Groen, whose first book seems to be piled high at airports around the globe, will be delighted to see that the sequel is now out in English. The perfect English-language introduction to Dutch poetry is available in the print edition of The Enchanting Verses anthology of modern Dutch poetry, from Nijhoff to Perquin and including poets like Lucebert, Wigman, Vasalis and many others. (http://www.theenchantingverses.org/issue-xxvi-december-2017.html) And Amazon Crossing’s edition of Annejet van der Zijl’s An American Princess has made a big splash on release, with more online readers’ reviews than some books have readers!
