Book Review: The Roar of the Morning by Tip Muragg

The Roar of Morning by Tip Muragg takes us for a ride through the island of Curaçao. It’s a sleepless night, and a man drinking both Dutch beer and whisky looks back at his life, and tumultuous events in the South American Continent.

I was so surprised to find a novel written in Dutch, about a former Dutch colony to be so Latin-American in flavor. It really felt like something written during the Latin American boom. Is it because the author is of Venezuelan descent, a Spanish speaker and lived in Venezuela for a while? Or is this due to the island’s mix heritage? I can’t say. But, If you love Garcia Marquez, you’d love this.‬
