    Harry Mulisch

    Hello I’m a Local writer

    Mulisch was born in Haarlem and lived in Amsterdam from 1958, following the death of his father in 1957, until the end of his own life. Harry Kurt Victor Mulisch (29 July 1927 – 30 October 2010) was a Dutch author. He wrote more than 80 novels, plays, essays, poems and philosophical reflections. These have been translated into more than 30 languages.
    Along with Willem Frederik Hermans and Gerard Reve, Mulisch is considered one of the “Great Three” of Dutch postwar literature. His novel The Assault became a 1986 film, which won both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award. A 2007 poll revealed his 1992 novel The Discovery of Heaven as the “Best Dutch Book Ever”. He was regularly thought of
    as a possible future Nobel laureate.
