By Hendrik Groen
Hendrik Groen may be old, but he is far from dead and isn’t planning to be buried any time soon. Technically speaking he is…elderly. But surely there is more to life at his age than weak tea and potted geraniums?
Hendrik decides to chronicle his life in his care home in Amsterdam, revealing all its ups and downs – including his new endeavor, the Old-But-Not-Dead Club. And when Eefje moves in – the woman Hendrik has always longed for – he polishes his shoes (and his teeth), grooms what’s left of his hair and attempts to make something of the life he has left, with hilarious, tender and devastating consequences.
An international bestseller, The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen will not only delight older readers with its wit and relevance, it will charm and inspire those who have years to go before their own expiration date.
