How's this for the cute and funny read of the week? The story in question is the short little novel called Cheese by Willem Elsschot. This novel dates back to 1933 when it was first published in Dutch. It was a big hit when it came out and, as after being translated into other languages, it has developed a fanbase in other countries as well.
Alright, so maybe it is not entirely accurate to refer to this story as cute. Certainly, it has its moments and will make you chuckle, especially as you read more about the antics of the main protagonist. However, the story also has its share of incredibly touching moments, specifically when you find yourself identifying with the inner conflicts of the main character.
The story itself is quite simple.
