  • About
  • Reviews
  • Born in 1971 in Amsterdam, Arnon Grunberg is one of the most widely read young European writers today. After he had been kicked out of high school, he worked as assistant in a drugstore, as dishwasher, publisher, and playwright for an Amsterdam theater company. In 1994, at age of 23, he made his debut with the internationally acclaimed novel Blue Mondays which won him two awards: for the best and for the bestselling debut novel. Prolific, provocative and witty, in his novels and short fiction alike Arnon Grunberg explores his Jewish background and manages to turn upside down, in a hilarious way, our ideas on Jewishness, Europe, and sex. 
    Praise for Arnon Grunberg 'A literary treat.'
    Rotterdams Dagblad
    'The wit and sardonic intelligence that shine through Arnon Grunberg’s prose make it a continual pleasure to read.'
    J.M. Coetzee
    'Deadpan, offbeat, quirkily comic but steeped in loneliness.'
    The Independent
