Ellen Ombre
On my way

The main character in the Radiobook, Nimrod Groen, looks back on his childhood years spent in Surinam, where he was born the son of a Jewish father and a much younger Creole mother. His mother died giving birth to her second child and in the aftermath of the December killings and the unstable situation in Surinam his father decided to leave and return to Amsterdam. It was here that Nimrod spent the rest of his youth. When it appears that his father is incurably ill, images of the past inevitably loom up. Although he and his father have never been really close, after the death of his father Nimrod's life takes a new turn.
