Renske Jonkman - Freunden von Freunden - Jordi Huisman
Freunden von Freunden (Friends of Friends) is an international interview magazine that portrays people of diverse creative and cultural backgrounds in their homes or within their daily working environments. Our content aspires to present multifaceted personal perspectives including impressions of cities, various art scenes and international urban living.

FvF interviewed Dutch novelist and journalist Renske Jonkman back in june of this year.

After the release of her debut Zo gaan we niet met elkaar om (We don’t treat each other like this) Renske Jonkman is currently working on her second novel. Combining journalism with fiction, the Amsterdam based writer explores the interference between reality and imagination. This interaction was the leitmotiv of her first book, and still strongly fascinates her. She does not take reality for granted, but plays with it willingly.

Unfortunately We don’t treat each other like this, is not available in English translation.
