J.J. Voskuil was a Dutch writer. Although most of his work was autobiographical, containing many references to his personal life, and travel diaries about hiking in France were published, little was known about the author prior to his student years, described in his first novel Bij nader inzien. The details, known to refer to the author are also somewhat exaggerated, as they appear in the life of his alter ego Maarten Koning in the various novels, published in his life time and posthumously.

In 2010, two years after his death, Jeugdherinneringen appeared at Van Oorschot Publishers. This small volume, a mere 60 pages, contains two autobiographical essays, describing Voskuil's earliest youth, previously published in 2007, and a longer essay focusing on his youth and the activities of his father, which was first published in 2001.

Very little autobiographical material has come out about the author, whose biography has not been published. This small publication will disappoint many, who are looking for autobiographical details which might shed light on Voskuil's career as an author. ( )
