Get Used To It

Humour, fiction, diary
Over 65,000 copies sold in the Netherlands
Unashamed, raw and moving

In her revealing diary, an unemployed actress named M. registers her life’s unravelling in big and small ways. Her teenage son Ole is threatening to leave the nest, and sex with her husband Koos started to feel like something that has to happen every now and again: ‘It’s just like a half-yearly check-up at the dentist, only less often.’ Meanwhile, she desperately longs for a lead role. M. wants to prove to herself – and above all to her son – that she still has a future.
