A Little Confession

A resoundingly Spanish family name, two loving if strict Spanish parents, and five weeks of compulsory family visits to Spain every summer during her childhood. And still Saskia Nuñez Reyero feels Dutch. A confession done upon graduating, with knees shaking, to her parents who in their turn have done all they could to keep her from denying her origins. With her heartbreaking and yet very funny illustrations Saskia demonstrates how she has always felt like an outsider as the daughter of two Spanish immigrants in Brabant. Her book A Little Confession tells her story in words and pictures. ‘This is my coming out: I am a Dutchwoman.’
