Theun de Vries's novel deals with the period of Vincent van Gogh spent in The Hague. Embittered by a failed love affair, he struggled to turn to painting. Poor, lonely and rejected, he withdraws the fate of Sien, which he regards as a pariah who needs help. The only one who supports him is his brother Theo, but he rejects Vincent's relationship with Sien. The author has used many letters from Vincent and Theo as a guide for his novel. Well written and fascinating book. It gives a better insight into an important phase in the life of the Vincent van Gogh.
