Marja Pruis

Marja Pruis (b. 1959) has been writing about the expectations men and women have of each other and of life since her debut novel Bloem (Flower). She has been called the chronicler of contemporary womanhood; she explores these themes further in her novels and essays. Pruis works at the De Groene Amsterdammer weekly magazine as a literary editor and columnist, writing essays on topics as wide-ranging as humour, shyness and greed. Her non-fiction books have earned numerous awards. Homework was named one of the best books of the year by de Volkskrant, Trouw and NRC.
