The Blessed Rita

The Blessed Rita the new novel from the bestselling Booker International longlisted Dutch author Tommy Wieringa

'In a certain sense, nothing had changed - two men in a house and a half-century passing without a ripple - but seen with the light from a different angle, none of it had remained the same.'

What is the purpose of a man? Living in a disused farmhouse with his elderly father, Paul Kruzen is not sure he knows anymore. The mill his grandfather toiled in is closed, the glory of the Great Wars is long past, and it has been many years since his mother escaped in the arms of a Russian pilot, never once looking back. What do they have to look forward to now?

Saint Rita, the patron saint of lost causes, watches over Paul and his best friend Horseradish Hedwig, two misfits at odds with the modern world, while Paul takes comfort in his own Blessed Rita, a prostitute from Quezon. But even she cannot protect them from the tragedy that is about to unfold.

In this darkly funny novel about life on the margins of society, Dutch sensation Tommy Wieringa asks what happens to those left behind.
