Querido, a high-profile publisher of literary fiction and poetry, is one of the eldest and best-known publishing houses in The Netherlands. Among their authors are Hella S. Haasse, Bernlef, Thomas Rosenboom and Marente de Moor. Querido also publishes translated literature (David Mictchell, Daniel Kehlmann, Patrick Modiano) and commercial fiction (Arnaldur Indridason).
Nijgh & Van Ditmar (part of Querido) is known for their cool writers, such as Arnon Grunberg, Ernest van der Kwast and Vrouwkje Tuinman, but also for their 20th-century Dutch classics list with Nescio and Bordewijk, for translations (Roddy Doyle, Bob Dylan, Sarah Waters) and for books on cabaret and lyrics.
Athenaeum–Polak & Van Gennep (part of Querido) is well-known for their classics list: Canetti, Casanova, Dante, Homer, Joyce, Petrarca, Rimbaud and many others. Multatuli is Athenaeum’s most famous Dutch writer. They have established an excellent reputation with high-quality Dutch non-fiction from authors such as Fik Meijer and Jona Lendering.
Marmer is a young and independent publishing house, and is very successful with commercial fiction by authors such as Mariëtte Middelbeek and Rita Spijker. Marmer has started to publish literature, translations (Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter) and poetry as well.
Vantilt is a non-fiction publisher of the highest quality, with titles that make academic subjects accessible to the general public. Vantilt successfully publishes groundbreaking works in the field of history, in particular the history of the Dutch Golden Age, philosophy, culture, and Europe.
De Arbeiderspers is a publishing house with a long tradition: it was founded in 1929. De Arbeiderspers publishes prize-winning novels from outstanding Dutch authors such as Anna Enquist, Maarten ’t Hart, Arthur Japin, Ilja Leonard Pfeiffer and Christiaan Weijts, but also has an impressive list of translated literature, ranging from Paulo Coelho and Michel Houellebecq to Georges Perec.
