Unadorned fiction, told by the older generation
Look ahead, make plans, change your life: are these things that the older generation does too, or does looking back dominate? And if you do look back, what do you see? During Spijtproza (Regret Prose), the older generation told you themselves. Strictly speaking they told stories thought up and put to paper by professional writers, although these are based on their own lives. Unadorned fiction, with a kernel of truth. And yes, the older generation will be taking to the stage. Because let’s be honest: it’s only when you’ve experienced something that you actually have something to say.
