About this book:

These spell-binding three novellas are intriguingly linked through similar themes, and the same characters and places feature in them. The three narrators are all artists: a painter, an architect and a pianist. And the search for meaning is through art.

Die blou deur starts with a dream and a reference to Kafka's story The Metamorphosis. In this novella the borders between reality and the surreal also fade. Artist David has a cottage where he paints, and one day, on entering it, he finds a different world, one in which he has another wife and is a father.

In Spieël architect Steve discovers one morning that he has turned black overnight. Suddenly he is confronted with the problem of identity.

In Appassionata a pianist becomes involved with a well-known singer, one with a dark history, and the reader is increasingly filled with a sense of foreboding.
