Amsterdam Tales

Amsterdam Tales Helen Constantine&, Paul Vincent

In this volume Paul Vincent presents a compelling collection of prose fiction, memoirs and anecdotes centring on Amsterdam from the seventeenth to the twenty-first century. His selection offers a rare insight into the history and culture of the city. The subjects range from Rembrandt to the persecution of the Jews in World War 2, from barricades in a working-class district during the Depression to a writer's unhealthy obsession with a massage parlour. These eighteen newly-translated tales give the reader, and the traveller, a tantalizing glimpse of the Amsterdam that lies beyond the tourist guidebooks.

  • Each tale evokes a different aspect of this beautiful and fascinating city
  • Draws together a selection of genres and literary styles, featuring memoirs alongside short stories
  • Offers the reader an abundance of local colour
  • Spans five centuries of history and culture
  • The latest title in the popular City Tales series
