Grandma Nettie sitting in the subway on the way home. She was still short at Stanley, who performs a fast food restaurant. Here she buys often for himself and Igor, Stanley shares her concerns. Who speak well, she thinks, “Pfft, as if life were that simple knit!” (P 256).

Nettie 56 years old. For nearly two decades, their daily concerns only turn to one person: Igor. He is her daughter Jolie that of cut 16 at home, advised the son to crime, come with drugs and crime into contact and become homeless -.

And those who gave birth to a disabled boy, Igor.

When it was Igor five, the social court to withdraw Jolie custody decided. Since Nettie was able to demonstrate a stable job as a toilet cleaner, Igor was awarded her. After the process Jolie spit their contempt Nettie’s face; they would never see each other. After all these years Nettie has forgiven her daughter, even sees error in itself -. she was still a young thing full of hippie, dreamed of a converted VW bus to travel to India, was always defiant, a cross-headed teen who tore out from home.

Perhaps she had neglected Jolie, not given her everything.

find now Nettie must Jolie, to tell her of Igor, who, since he is 16 years old, earned in a sheltered workshop his own money. he had a short time even a girlfriend, Lisa, who brought a little baby and lived with them. Lisa had had a bicycle accident in a coma and has been brain damaged.

But what Grandma Nettie not do anything just for the sake Igor – even if they so makes her thoughts: It stinks that she now “two of the species” and, moreover, has a baby in her apartment. And Lisa has probably only exploited their Igor to find a place to sleep? Previously, she lived at the Salvation Army homeless and sold newspapers.

Renate Dorrestein allows us to immerse themselves in a world that will be the most completely foreign. Their protagonists are buffeted by life and hardened, live frugal on social lowermost level, have a simple mind and simple thoughts, but retains her humanity. Here Nettie is the focus. Their female colleagues in the toilet department are, besides Stanley, their only “normal” party, but a spiritual enrichment, they can be a little as well as a critical corrective to their ideas and plans.

Nettie takes her difficult task full of honesty and transfer to sacrifice. She is happy to have reached their only goal in life: live Igor does not imprisoned or placed in a home, although he ever misunderstand things and in his fury anything can beat to pieces. Now he is day care and assembles proudly campers.

Igor observed his environment and the reader shares with from his perspective and in its individual logic in simple sentences. When he was ten years old, he asks: “Grandma, there’s someone like me?” (S. 35). he noticed fact that he is different? Despite his mental disability he comes to striking insights: “Thinking ahead makes you happy, do not remember.” “You just always have to keep a clear head.” (S. 25). Like everyone else he longs for love, need sex, feels grief. In particular, Bobbie, his first and only true platonic love, he mourns. She worked briefly in the workshop, held the noise and the crowds around them not out and went away again. Perhaps there is one day a reunion.

Nettie it owes Stanley that you can not arrest her and Igor wegsperrt. Stanley the thing with Lisa, Igor and the baby from the beginning has been correctly. Without big words, he is going the way of Igors way back with him and bring the matters to a good end … Then he can tell Nettie what really was happening at that time -. And of which they had no idea. Renate Dorresteins novel “All full of hope” is encouraging and gives “hope” that there is always a way, and if it is only a very small glimmer of light also brings these hard hit by fate sun.

However, it is difficult for me quite lay this book without criticism. I do not have it in it to differentiation. Nettie is such a good person to assume any challenge and it gives up her own self completely, and that’s me then but to one side or stereotyped. Literary absolutely convincing succeeds the author, immerse oneself in Igor. The design of its actions and its always amazing thoughts could a disabled little sensitive, respectful and authentic portray is far from even beginning as inferior disqualify him and. Renate Dorrestein was born in 1954 in Amsterdam, worked first as a journalist and is today one of the most important Dutch writers. Several of her novels have been nominated for important Dutch literary prizes.
