Blue Mondays

The novel’s protagonist – named Arnon, like its author – is a young man on the run: expelled from high school and on the outs with his ailing father, he spends his days and nights living a vagabond’s life on the streets of Amsterdam.
Then he begins to visit prostitutes and in his fumbling, guileless, tender encounters with them we see what’s beneath his nonstop comic riffling.
