Successful Launch of Engel

December 18, 2009

news Many people joined us last Saturday to celebrate the launch of Engel, Arnold Jansen op de Haar’s new novel and the sequel to De koning van Tuzla.

It was very appropriate that the launch of a book called Engel (Angel) took place in a room full of beautiful Christmas decorations.

The publisher introduced Holland Park Press to a packed audience and Arnold in his own inimitable style read a few passages and very interestingly told us about the relation between author and the main character Tijmen in Engel.


Arnold also provided us with other insights about how the novel came into life.

We all went home happy with a copy of Engel signed by the author.

This is what one of the first readers wrote to Arnold after finishing the book:


‘I have read your book from cover to cover in one go. Thank you for a delightfully written and moving novel. This novel stays with you and thinking about it still brings a tear to my eye.’


Intrigued? You can find out what generates all this excitement and order Engel from this website.
