1 De Wit, Joost, Compiler—Stanley H. Barkan, Editor 50 Dutch & Flemish Novelists
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications Foundation for Translations 1979 0893040320 / 9780893040321 First Paperback New Novel Excerpts 5 1/2x8 1/2 Cover design by Bebe Barkan 
"When this project was conceived by Joost de Wit, director of the Foundation for the Promotion of the Translation of Dutch Literary Works, to prepare fifty four-page promotional folios on Dutch and Flemish novelists, it was with a view towards interesting American editors and publishers in publishing these novelists—heretofore or relatively unknown to them—in English. Once the folios were completed, however, it became apparent that the collected set could provide an introduction to novelists of the Netherlands for anyone seeking it. Thus, 50 DUTCH & FLEMISH NOVELISTS evolved. It is hoped that this collection will further enhance interest on the part of major and small presses and that those seeking an introduction to Dutch and Flemish novelists will find the rich and exciting one that I found while editing and preparing this manuscript for publication." —Stanley H.Barkan
