She was raised by her foster family as one of their own, but a falling out after the war put an end of to their relationship.

*** WINNER OF THE COSTA BOOK OF THE YEAR 2018 *** 'A masterpiece of history and memoir' Evening Standard 'Superb. This is a necessary book - painful, harrowing, tragic, but also uplifting' The Times Little Lien wasn't taken from her Jewish parents - she was given away in the hope that she might be saved. Hidden and raised by a foster family in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation, she survived the war only to find that her real parents had not. Much later, she fell out with her foster family, and Bart van Es - the grandson of Lien's foster parents - knew he needed to find out why. His account of tracing Lien and telling her story is a searing exploration of two lives and two families. It is a story about love and misunderstanding and about the ways that our most painful experiences - so crucial in defining us - can also be redefined.

Although he'd left the Netherlands for England, one story from Bart van Es's childhood never left him: a young Jewish girl named Lientje had been taken in during the war by his relatives and hidden from the Nazis, then raised as one of their own. But after the war there was a falling out, and they were no longer in touch. What was the girl's side of the story, and where had she gone? So began an investigation that would consume Bart van Es's life. He learned that Lientje was now in her eighties and living in Amsterdam, and eventually they struck up a remarkable friendship. THE CUT OUT GIRL combines a powerful recreation of Lientje's harrowing story with the present-day account of Bart's efforts to piece it together, bringing old ghosts into the light.

Shakespeare s Comedies A Very Short Introduction

From The Two Gentlemen of Verona in the early 1590s to The Two Noble Kinsmen at the end of his career around 1614, Shakespeare wrote at least eighteen plays that can be called 'comedies': a far higher number than that for any other genre in which he wrote. So what is a Shakespearean comedy? We associate these plays with such themes as mistaken identities, happy marriages, and exuberant cross dressing, but how representative are these of the oeuvre as a whole? In this Very Short Introduction, Bart van Es explores the full range of the playwright's comic writing, from the neat classical plotting of early works like The Comedy of Errors to the corrupt world of the so-called problem plays, written in the middle years of Shakespeare's life. Examining Shakespeare's influences and sources, van Es compares his plays to those of his rivals, and looks at the history of the plays in performance, from the biographies of Shakespeare's original actors to the plays' endless reinvention in modern stage productions and in films. Identifying the key qualities that make Shakespearean comedy distinctive, van Es traces the changing nature of Shakespeare's comic writing over the course of a career that spanned nearly a quarter century of theatrical change.
