The Days of Bluegrass Love


Illustrator: Edward van de Vendel - Translated by Emma Rault


The Days of Bluegrass Love, originally published in the Netherlands in 1999 and now a beloved classic throughout Europe, is masterfully presented to American readers for the first time - a tender, intense, unforgettable story of first love.

Tycho Zeling is drifting through his life. Everything in it – school, friends, girls, plans for the future – just kind of . happens. Like a movie he presses play on, but doesn't direct.

So Tycho decides to break away from everything. He flies to America to spend his summer as a counselor at a summer camp, for international kids. It is there that Oliver walks in, another counselor, from Norway.

And it is there that Tycho feels his life stop, and begin again, finally, as his.
