Chapter 1: ‘Meet the new singing sensation from West-Friesland!’
Meet Martin Malibu, the new singing sensation of Westfriesland. Martin promotes drama to romanticise his own life. He is over-the-top and narcissistic. A true ‘softboy’. The provincial city is too small for his big dreams of an international career as singer, with everything that comes with it. His fantasy is the only way out of Martin’s bourgeois existence. Martin says that he wants to express his feelings, but only does this to get attention. Martin’s life is dominated by his dream of becoming a singer. Martin is the lost romantic, he is the troubled artist in a rather flat and dull surrounding.
