Sample text

Hij heette Jan Wildschut, wat precies de goede naam is voor iemand van wie het hoofd niet helemaal in orde is. Hij had een dik, een beetje opgeblazen gezicht, en zowel in de zomer als in de winter droeg hij een sjaal en wanten. Ik heb nooit begrepen waarom de ouders van een kind dat achterlijk is, hem daarbij ook nog de verkeerde kleren aantrekken, zodat het nog meer opvalt. In de pauze stond hij in zijn winterjas op het schoolplein en kauwde langzaam op zijn boterhammen, die hij uit een plastic doos met deksel haalde, waarbij er altijd een paar broodkruimels op zijn kin bleven hangen en er ook wat speeksel uit zijn mondhoeken naar beneden liep.
