The new book by Nicolien Mizee, Jumping high and low, gets five balls in NRC. For connoisseurs, Mizee (1965) has been regarded as one of the best writers in the Netherlands for many years – she was previously nominated for the Libris Literature Prize. Yet she is less known to the wider public. Wrongly, think literary editor Thomas de Veen and critic and writer Roos van Rijswijk, who in this episode sit down with presenter Michel Krielaars to talk about this maladjusted woman from a wealthy Haarlem family. From “brilliantly written” to “a guru” – what makes Mizee so special and loved?
