Arthur Japin wins NS Publieksprijs 2008 E-mail

ImageAMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Arthur Japin this year the Public NS won for his novel The Interchange. That is the foundation of the Dutch Collective Propaganda Book (CPNB) announced Tuesday.


Japin received during the publication in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam a sculpture by Jeroen Henneman, an amount of 7500 euro and a yearly subscription of the 1st class NS. The writer received the prizes from the hands of the American Consul-General Marjorie Ames of the consulate in Amsterdam. Ames is from Texas, the same place where the novel by Japin happens. The author read an emotional ceremony after the excerpt from his book.

The Interchange is about the American pioneer woman Granny. In the battle for territory between the Comanche Indians and the settlers they touched everything and everyone lost. The only thing they eventually left, is her great, who is chief of the Comanche Indians. Meanwhile, there are the book already sold 180,000 copies.


The NS Public is the only annual Dutch book in which the reader has the last word. This year brought 47,724 people through their Internet voting, 35 percent more than last year. No fewer than three quarters of the votes came from women. In addition to the election via the Internet, there was a 'core panel' of three hundred book lovers who are voting. The jury is the core CPNB created in order to prevent websites as GeenStijl manipulate the election.

For the election were six books nominated. Other opportunities were Abdolah Box with The Messenger and the Koran, Pim van Lommel with Endless Consciousness, Maria Mustard with Real Men Do not Eat Cheese, Simone van der Vlugt (blue water) and Leon de Winter (The Right of Return). The oldest national audience for books was Tuesday for the 22nd time.
