Note "First published in the Netherlands as 'Attempts to Make Something of Life. The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83 1/4 Years Old' by Meulenhoff 2014"--Title page verso.
Summary Hendrik Groen may be old, but he is far from dead and isn't planning to be buried any time soon. But surely there is more to life at his age than weak tea and potted geraniums? Hendrik sets out to write an exposť: a year in the life of his care home in Amsterdam, revealing all its ups and downs-- not least his new endeavor, the anarchic Old-But-Not-Dead Club. And when Eefje moves in-- the woman Hendrik has always longed for-- he polishes his shoes and his teeth, grooms what's left of his hair and attempts to make something of the life he has left.
