Welcome to Attwater Books


I am a writer from the Netherlands publishing under the name Marcus Attwater. When not at my part-time day job, I spend a lot of time reading, writing, or simply thinking about things. You can learn more about my books by clicking on the subjects in the menu above, and find links to sellers of available titles to the right. In 2019 I published Straightforward, a study of the ideal of love as it developed in stories from ancient Greek epic to modern fantasy movies. Besides learning about language and history I enjoy listening to French baroque opera, watching Spanish football, reading guidebooks to places I'll never go, and looking at old churches. All church photographs illustrating this website are my own work.
