Das Ende ist mein Anfang

Dit boek kreeg ik van een Zwitserse vrouw die met haar man 3 nachten in Villa Sabandari  logeerde.
‘Het is een heel mooi boek’ zei ze, ‘… en ook op u van toepassing’ voegde ze er, wat cryptisch, aan toe.
Ook op mij van toepassing? In de betekenis van ‘zoals op iedereen van toepassing’ of specifiek op mij van toepassing vroeg ik me af toen ze al weg waren en ik de achterflap had gelezen.
Moet ik nu in paniek raken? Knipogende emoticon
Hoe dan ook, ons bibliotheekje is een boek rijker.
Waarvoor dank.
