Tjitske Jansen
There was once

The Radiobook by Tjitske Jansen is very typical of her work, which ranges from loving memories to observations seen through the eyes of a child and written with plenty of humour and minor tragedy (seen through the eyes of an adult).

> Translated by Michael O'Loughlin, read by Ginger da Silva
