The book 'Ik Jan Cremer' turned the Netherlands upside down in the early 1960s. Cremer told a cool boy story that was all about sex, rock & roll and discovering the world. Daphne was thirteen when she accidentally found the book, and it made her blush. To her, being Jan Cremer seemed much more interesting than her mother. And it was!
'You live by playing,' is Daphne Gakes' motto. As a child she only wanted one thing: to grow up as soon as possible. Now that she is finally big, she wants to remain a child. With an open mind, she dives into wild adventures and does what other people only dream of. She lives in a camper, makes a living from making art and is open to everyone.
Using her mother's diaries, Daphne wonders how she should live. Wild – full of sex, drugs and rock & roll – or calm – with peace, cleanliness and regularity? From being in prison after stealing a salmon and entering into an open relationship to her work as an artist and her work in the escortbusiness. In a resounding coming-of-age novel, Daphne Gakes takes you to these pivotal moments in her life. Is she free-spirited and tough or afraid to choose? And if everything seems possible, who sets the limit?
