By John Beringen
Merkwaardig, zo'n aanbeden jeugdboekenserie voor kinderen, pubers, tieners, twintigers, zestigers, zeventigers, tachtigers, negentigers en toch vooral dertigers, veertigers en vijftigers (m/v) - en hun kinderen! Merkwaardig, dat onze drie opgewekte helden zich nooit samenhangend en persoonlijker hebben uitgelaten over, bijvoorbeeld, de ware aard van hun onderlinge verhoudingen, hun verdiensten (in money, ponden, guldens, auto's, reisjes, edelstenen enz.), hun familie, de relatie met hun schrijvende vader en wat al niet meer. Alsof zij zich niet wilden lenen voor een diepergaander onderhoud. Alsof ze om 'overexposure' te voorkomen een publiciteitsembargo afgekondigd zouden hebben.
Niets is minder waar - het betreft hier een manco, een omissie, een onvolkomenheid, misschien wel een taboe. was once het niet St. Carolius van Aacken, abt van de basiliek van Porlezza da Stati, die al in de veertiende eeuw meende te moeten constateren: 'Wat ons het meest nabij is, zien we het laatst'?
John Beringen heeft het gelukkig tijdig gezien. Hij nam de tijd, pakte een pen en stelde onze drie niet klein te krijgen naturen een aantal vragen die al te lang op antwoord hebben moeten wachten. Hij heeft de reaction geredigeerd en op papier gezet. U kijkt momenteel tegen de achterkant van het resultaat.
Een waarschuwing is hier echter wel geboden: De liefhebber passe op dat hij niet te laat op zijn werk komt of zijn vakantie verdroomt, als hij eenmaal aan het encyclopedisch gedeelte van dit boek is begonnen.

I had known she would finally put me at risk. I tried to pay no attention when she stole things and presented them to me, because they were little things and of no use. A Mexican embroidered nightshirt, whereas I like to sleep in the altogether, or a silver money clip in the shape of an L for Lester, like I was some downtown lawyer, or an antique music box, for Christ’s sake, that plays “Columbia the Gem of the Ocean,” as if anyone would want to hear it more than once. Totally the wrong things for me, if it was me she was stealing for, whereas I was hard pressed to get a decent meal in this household.
I had seen enough. I woke up Karen and hustled her and the baby and all the Kmart paraphernalia into the Durango. Why, whatever is the matter, Lester? Karen said. She was still half asleep. Are we going somewhere? She looked frightened for a moment until I put Baby Wilson in her arms. I ran back to the house and grabbed some clothes and things for each of us. Then I ran back again and turned off the lights and locked the door. I could imagine them any minute coming up the road and through the woods around us at the same time.
She stood listening, Brenda, and shook her head. Lester, she said, your brains are in your balls. That is the way you are and the way you’ll always be. Goddamnit, Brenda, it’s not something I’ve done, you understand. Is this what I need to hear from you right now? She was squinting at me from the smoke drifting up into her eyes. I said, And you sometimes haven’t minded if that’s where my brain is, as I recall. Brenda is as unlike Karen as two women can be. Sturdier in mind, and shaped as if for the Bluebird clientele in her powder blue uniform with the Brenda stitched on the bosom pocket.
