Savant Books Announces the Release of Hans Brinckmann's New Novel, "In the Eyes of the Son"
Savant Books and Publications LLC, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, announces the release of Hans Brinckmann's dramatic fictional autobiographic novel, "In the Eyes of the Son."
Born in The Hague, author Hans Brinckmann suppressed his hope to embark on a career in writing to join the Far Eastern program of a Dutch bank, fresh out of high school. Within a year he was assigned to the Singapore branch, and later to the Kobe branch in Japan, eventually rising to Tokyo Branch Manager at age twenty-nine.
His career eventually took him to New York, where he served as president of the Institute of Foreign Bankers, representing two hundred and forty banks, and as president of a Dutch-American foundation active in cultural exchange. In 1986, Queen Beatrix made him an Officer in the Order of Orange-Nassau for "cultural and professional achievement."
He retired from banking in 1988, living in London, Amsterdam, Sydney and Japan, while developing his second career as a journalist, lecturer, poet and writer. He has published two collections of short stories, a much praised memoir, a post-war history of Japan, a book of poetry, and appears in Savant Book's highly acclaimed 2014 Anthology of Poetry entitled "Volutions."
In 2008, Brinckmann, and fellow photographer Ysbrand Rogge’s month-long photography exhibition in Tokyo -- images of Japan between 1951 and 1974 -- drew 50,000 visitors. Brinckmann now lives in Fukuoka, Japan. He maintains two author websites: www.habri.co.uk (English) and www.habri.jp (bilingual English/Japanese)
"In the Eyes of the Son reflects the drama and challenges I experienced in different countries," says Brinckmann, "and the painful struggle to free myself from a career that I never chose. But it is fiction, and should be read as such."
