In 1980, Cees Nooteboom published his novel Rituelen (Rituals), one of the most popular and most translated books in Dutch literature. The book is a moving novel about different generations – sometimes tragic, sometimes tragicomic – based on three decades in the life of dilettante Inni Wintrop. The author himself recorded the complete novel as an audiobook in 2008. Click below to listen to the first chapter (in Dutch only).
