Stupid People Pay More. An Extract from Marja Brouwers' 'Casino'
The Low Countries - 2007, № 15, pp. 64-66
In Marja Brouwers' novel 'Casino', Rink de Vilder, a journalist on a national newspaper, meets the yacht designer Philip van Heemskerk in Monte Carlo. It is the onset of an acquaintance with a tempestuous, somewhat whimsical but astoundingly capacious mind. In addition to being an experienced solo yachtsman, a sponsor of Formula 1 racing and a talented amateur mechanic when it comes to Harley Davidson engines, Philip is the unfaithful lover of Moura, who, with his approval, seeks consolation in Rink's arms. At an Amsterdam restaurant, Philip offers to give Rink and Moura a house free of charge.
