The House of Dolls is the debut book for Pieter Vos, an Amsterdammer living in a houseboat on the Prinsengracht canal. It’s out now from Pan Macmillan and will be published in Dutch by Boekerij in June. I’m delighted to say it’s also being bought for European TV by one of the largest media companies in Europe… of which more later.
You can read more about the book here. There’s an extensive post with photos on the video and background here. And if you have an iPad you can download a free background multimedia book on the series here.
Next year’s instalment in the series is now being edited. More Pieter Vos and co on the way. My thanks to all my colleagues in Pan Macmillan in London and at Boekerij in Amsterdam, particularly my ever-helpful editor Rienk Tychon for his local insights.
The English edition will be launched at the Amsterdam Book Centre on April 25. I’ll be back in Amsterdam for the Dutch edition at the end of May… more later on that.
