    ePUB agneroshetland.co ¿ Kaas MOBI ✓ kaas epub, Kaas PDF/EPUBA tragicomical story about a 50 year old man living in Antwerp Belgium back in 1933 who loses his mother and goes through a midlife crisis His story is not particularly funny not downright hilarious but contains elements of bitter irony and a mild cynicism of sorts It can be perceived as a satire but it is also a realistic depiction of the dairy daily lives

    ePUB agneroshetland.co ¿ Kaas MOBI ✓ kaas epub, Kaas PDF/EPUBMmmm cheese What a totally delectable foodstuff The cheese of choice within this literary morsel and random surprise left field 1001 books choice is Edam Personally I'm of a Halloumi or Cave Aged Gruyere person myself but I guess much like the 1001 list there is no accounting for taste The novella itself is surprisingly Edam y in outward appearance a bright red waxy cover surrounding a slim creamy tranche of paper however the content are to the contrary uite un cheesy Willem Elsschot has written a slightly odd but delightful parable of a man who bites off cheese than he can chew Frans Laarmans wants nothing than to better himself and the lot of his family And how does a lowly shipping clerk go about making his millions? In cheese of course why it's practically soft yellow gold Ok it's not really but everyone has to start somewhere Richard Branson started out with magazine publishing and Alan Sugar started his multi million pound slush fund by selling Beetroot so p

    ePUB agneroshetland.co ¿ Kaas MOBI ✓ kaas epub, Kaas PDF/EPUBAlthough I love cheese I don't know what to say about this book I think I had to read it when I was younger for school I remember it vaguely Now I wanted to read it because I love cheese It was hard to read because it had the old Dutch language and this will cost points It was lengthy about what the character was doing however he missed the plot of selling He was short on that People found this book funny I still haven't found the humor in it It wasn't a bad story

    ePUB agneroshetland.co ¿ Kaas MOBI ✓ kaas epub, Kaas PDF/EPUBIn high school I had no interest at all in Dutch literature It was English books I felt drawn towards the amazing fantasy novels I discovered in my childhood and their spinoffs such as urban fantasy and paranormal romance Even English classics were preferable to the literature of my country as the stories of Austen and Dickens held their own kind of nostalgic magic It's only now that I am moving to England probably for at least three years that I feel the urge to discover the books that have shaped the country I was born in So far my only experience with Dutch lit has been through the dreaded reading list enforced upon reluctant teens Even the most wonderful occupation can be made dreary by making it mandatory and unsurprisingly I didn't even read half of the books I was supposed to A few

    ePUB agneroshetland.co ¿ Kaas MOBI ✓ kaas epub, Kaas PDF/EPUBWhat a delightful little book and an interesting addition to the 1001 list in fact I would probably never have even heard of it otherwise Elsscot true genius is to take such a banal mundane subject matter as Edam cheese and turning it into something rather interestingFrans Laarmans is a bored shipping clerk who after the funeral of his mother enters into the world of business as a cheese magnate in an attempt to escape his humdrum life and impress his new friends whom he feels inferior to However Frans has no aptitude for business and is a dreamer fritters away his time away outfitting his new office rather than actually trying to sell the product He does not even like the cheeseIt is a good job that this is a short book as I did not find Laarmans a particularily appealing character and am not sure how I would have felt if the story had dragged on for another 100 pages or so In the end this short book is uirky rather than being funny sad but never tragic a pa

    ePUB agneroshetland.co ¿ Kaas MOBI ✓ kaas epub, Kaas PDF/EPUBIt is easy to be cynical about a short novella which features a man who sells Edam cheese Elsschot's story isn't all that original a classic tale of hubris of wanting than life is willing to endow you with But 'Kaas' is so charmingly written and the humor is so understatedly funny that the story really does become than the sum of its partsPoor old Frans Laarmans he is out buying a desk before he has even sold a single slice of cheese and when he does make a sale he takes a taxi to deliver it The man obviously didn't ask for his new position as a cheese salesman but he does enjoy the increase in status that comes with it He engages in small talk with his new salesma

    ePUB agneroshetland.co ¿ Kaas MOBI ✓ kaas epub, Kaas PDF/EPUBA lightly absurd novella of a man temperamentally unsuited for business going into business like a Magnus Mills story grounded in the anxieties of middle class realism Also a masterful piece of understatement in which the humor and the dramatic stakes of events come through in what's not said directly especially when the narrator's self knowledge is awkwardly out of sync

    ePUB agneroshetland.co ¿ Kaas MOBI ✓ kaas epub, Kaas PDF/EPUBI realize that creating a flawed character is part of good writing but I found the protagonist to be just plain annoying I try to stay away from annoying people in real life and don't feel the need to associate with them in literature eitherFrans Laarmans is a clerk that suddenly finds himself as a businessman in the world of cheese He is ploddingly inept to a point that is intended to be comicalpeople must have had a different perception of comedy in the 1930'sThe presentation of the social strata of the period was interesting though
