JONATHAN GRIFFIOEN - NEIGHBOURHOOD (2016)

ABOUT THE BOOK

In Neighbourhood everybody is just hanging around a bit: the narrator and his best friend Mike (stock boys accidently cast as main characters), the legendary Erik, weatherman Arie. Their daily life looks like raw material for a joke, but while we’re laughing we wonder: how can something so depressing become so precious?

Neighbourhood is a brutal and moving portrait of youth somewhere in Holland.
