Joan van der Keuken - Achter Glas, C. de Boer jr., 1957, Hilversum

 

Hardcover cloth bound with dust jacket, text by Remco Campert.

"... Students lounge around in their rooms, doing nothing very much, as if waiting for their adult lives to begin. The mood is uncertain, capturing that moment when childhood ends and youth must take a deep breath and step out into the world. This was also the theme of Achter Glas, Van der Keuken's second foray into the new form of the 'photonovel'. Two sisters, Georgette and Yvonne, do little more than sit by a window, day-dreaming. And it was this youthful lassitude, this apparent aimlessness, perfectly expressed by Van der Keuken, that caused a degree of controversy. But his view of teenage rebellion at the sulky rather than more active stage rings painfully true. It became a model for other books examining the same phenomenon, not the least of which is the recent work of Van der Keuken's compatriot, Helen van Meene, whose similar view of Dutch adolescents now in colour- has also proved controversial.
