Originally deemed “shameless, not fit for publishing” by de Jong’s longtime Dutch publisher, The Tree and the Vine is a classic of queer literature whose re-introduction in English is overdue.

A quick propulsive style; it’s the kind of book that has an energy that asks to be read in a single sitting.

Contains shades of Elena Ferrante and Patricia Highsmith’s The Price of Salt in its portrayal of the complexity of desire and female friendship.

This edition showcases a vibrant new translation.

We’ll be continuing with de Jong’s critically acclaimed 1947 novel The Field, which draws on her experience in Tangiers during WWII.
