The family under the microscope for Christmas. The family sits together in the living room and looks at a festively decorated tree. It smells of candles, spices and tangerines. The children look forward to their gifts. And all mention of themselves.
A familiar scenario? Maybe. Family life gives us many great moments, but also sometimes leads to resentment and disputes. As the saying is so true: what love is, it teases out! In her novel family blues, Yvonne Kroonenberg examines identifiable figures as we our families perceive. What do we love each other, What irritates us? We deal in its history with some typical characters: an uncle who tells constantly bad jokes, an eternally jealous sister, or a mother who unasked stick their nose into everyone’s Affairs. Yvonne Kroonenberg describes the family as follows: it is the families-Blues. Sure, you know that feeling. You have parents, brothers and sisters.
And you feel connected with them. Forever. No matter what you feel for them. No matter, how you think about it. You can end friendships. A non-blood kinship.
