Simon Carmiggelt

From November 8th till January 26th, the Amsterdam Permuseum will showcase a temporary exposition celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Simon Carmiggelt.

I read Camiggelt when I was in my teens (which is quite a while ago) and loved his writing a lot.

Anyway, nowaday you never find one book by him in a bookshop, all you want to read from him has to be acquired in the second hands bookshops.

Here's some more info about the expo.

 He had a great feeling for oneliners, some of them can be found here.

What about this one :

"Geld maakt niet gelukkig, dat heeft het met armoe gemeen."
