Annejan Mieras

Annejan Mieras (b. 1965) is an architect by training, but found herself unsuited to the profession, and so chose to go into primary education. She has been teaching for over ten years now. Since her 2018 debut, Portiek Zeezicht, she has also been a writer. This cheerful, cinematic book about loss, friendship and ingenuity was enthusiastically received and earned an honourable mention from the jury of the Woutertje Pieterse Prize 2019. Her second book, Homme and the Emergency Case, has confirmed her talent as a writer.

Homme en het noodgeval

(Lemniscaat, 2019, 188 pagina's)

In crystal-clear language and lively dialogues, Annejan Mieras tells how the grumpy Homme (9) gradually abandons his opposition to the ‘sleepover’ of his strange classmate Pien, whose troubled mother is staying at a recovery centre. The surprising theme running through the book is a poem by Poland’s Nobel Prize winner, which Mieras subtly and playfully interweaves with the story.
