To Their Downfall, Eyes Wide Shut. About the Books of Thomas Rosenboom
(Jeroen Vullings) The Low Countries - 2001, № 9, pp. 212-218
Thomas Rosenboom's approach to the historical novel is quite unlike that of his Dutch colleagues. His work embodies the difference between a real historical novel and the old-fashioned biographical romance. What stays in mind after reading his books is not the thoroughly crafted scenery, the historical background, but the powerful image of the troubled inner man who is often the anti-hero in his novels. (with a translated extract from ‘Public Works')
