Dear Henry (English)

author: Brian A. Bramson isbn: 978-1-888580-19-8 pages: 160, illustrated pub year: 2002 price: US$11.50

A  

tongue-in-cheek  

look  

at  

the  

Dutch  

and  

their  

wondrous  

ways.  

Written  

with  

a  

mood  

reminiscent  

of  

our  

flagship  

work  

"The

UnDutchables"  

but  

with  

a  

gentleman’s  

touch,  

"Dear  

Henry"  

captures  

the  

quirky  

ways  

of  

the  

Dutch  

from  

a  

typically  

British

viewpoint.

The  

book  

is  

a  

compilation  

of  

profound  

and  

humorous  

letters  

from  

a  

British  

expatriate  

in  

Holland  

(Uncle  

Brian)  

to  

his

sheltered  

nephew  

(Henry),  

preparing  

Henry  

for  

his  

impending  

arrival  

in  

the  

Netherlands.  

Each  

letter  

is  

written  

with  

skill,

insight, and a large dose of culture-shock wit.

The  

book,  

portions  

of  

which  

were  

originally  

serialized  

on  

the  

Internet,  

now  

has  

a  

surprise  

ending  

with  

an  

unexpected  

twist

and revelations about the author’s motives for writing it.
