But running a business is not as straightforward as he thought. As the bulk of the twenty tons of cheese sits in storage, crates and ...show more crates of it, it starts to haunt him.

xvi, 134 pp.; 20 cm. Translated from the Dutch. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. Age toning. First edition thus. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "Cheese is a gentle, satirical fable of capit ...show morealism and wealth. A clerk in Antwerp suddenly becomes the chief agent in Belgium and Luxembourg for Edam cheese and is saddled with 10,000 wheels of the red-rinded delight. But he has no idea how to run a business or how to sell his goods, and what?s more, he doesn?t even like cheese. Steeped in the atmosphere of the 1930s, an era of smart operators and failed businessmen, Cheese gracefully portrays the rigid class divisions of the time and a man?s obsession with status. This comic masterpiece about the perils of upward mobility is as relevant in the age of Internet investors and dot-com failures as it was when it was written." - Publisher. ...show less
