About the Author

Mulisch's name will go down in history as the writer par excellence of modern myths, and possibly not only in Dutch literary history. Every one of his great novels such as Het Stenen Bruidsbed (The Stone Bridal Bed) (1959), Hoogste Tijd (High Time) (1985), and De Aanslag (The Assault) (1982) is mostrar mais technically based on, or evokes reminiscences of, existing classical myths; at the same time, each work is thematically related to the author's own time and experiences, usually World War II. Every one of the more important characters, excluding the main characters who normally serve as narrators or reporters, is an embodiment or personification of an archetype. In The Assault the various characters not only play completely different roles in the killing of a German officer by members of the Dutch Resistance movement, but they also represent distinct types. The action is also much more than an incident. The protagonist, Anton Steenwijk, spends a lifetime trying to solve the puzzle consisting of the various causes and effects relative to the fatal act. He does this not as a detective but as a normal, thinking human being who is interested in knowing where he came from and where he is headed. The puzzle that presents itself to him is as complex, yet as logical, as the waves created by a passing ship, reverberating indefinitely, even when the ship has disappeared from sight. Mulisch is, with Wolkers, Hermans, and Vestdijk, one of the most talented novelists of his generation, but he may be expected to outlive all three others because of the classical nature of his work, classical here meaning "of primary significance for all people of all times." (Bowker Author Biography) Harry Mulisch is the author of such internationally bestselling novels as "The Assault", which was made into the film that won the 1987 Oscar for Best Foreign Film, & "The Discovery of Heaven". He has also published short stories, essays, poetry, plays, & philosophical works. He lives in Amsterdam. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Harry Mulisch was born in the town of Haarlem, the Netherlands. His father Karl Mulisch was an Austrian immigrant who had served as an officer in World War I, and his mother Alice Schwarz was herself the daughter of Austrian Jews. By the time Germany invaded and occupied the Netherlands in 1940, his parents were divorced. His father worked at Lippmann-Rosenthal & Company, a repository for looted Jewish assets, where he made connections that helped save Harry and his mother from deportation and death. After the war, his father was imprisoned for three years as a German collaborator and his mother moved to the USA. Mulisch attended the Christelijk Lyceum, which he had to leave in 1944. His original career ambition was to be a scientist. In 1947, he published his first story in a weekly newspaper and five years later, published his first novel, Archibald Strohalm. He went on to produce more novels, plays, collections of essays, short stories, opera libretti, poetry, and memoirs, and covered the Eichmann trial for Dutch newspapers in 1962. He won the leading Dutch literary awards and become the country’s most admired living author. In 1971, he married Sjoerdje Woudenberg, an artist, with whom he had two daughters; in 1989, he began living with Kitty Saal, with whom he had a third child. His 1982 novel De Aanslag (The Assault) was a bestseller that was translated into 32 languages, and made into a successful Dutch film, winning the Academy Award in 1987 for Best Foreign Film. It became a standard text in Dutch schools.
