In April 2015 her next Dutch novel 'Niets te verbergen' will be released.

Nederlands:
Aglaia Bouma (1970) is behalve schrijver emotioneel rationalist, luchthartig pessimist, sociale einzelgänger, empathisch misantroop, ondernemer en een vat vol.
In april 2015 verschijnt haar roman 'Niets te verbergen'. Dit boek speelt in het Nederland van 2032, wanneer overheid en bedrijfsleven alle persoonlijke data van individuen opslaan in een Elektronisch Burgerdossier. Prostituee Maud zit daar niet zo mee. Ze heeft niets te verbergen, dus ook niets te vrezen. Of toch wel?
Haar roman ‘De dwaling’ heeft positieve recensies mogen ontvangen en de korte verhalen van haar hand gooien regelmatig hoge ogen bij wedstrijden. ‘Zelfportret’ en 'Kort aangebonden' werden gepubliceerd in literaire tijdschriften. Verscheidene andere verhalen zijn opgenomen in bundels.

Review by: Ksenia Toivonen on Jan. 15, 2013 :
A beautiful, sensitive and slightly melancholic short story about how to refine a life and deep felt values. Painting a self-portrait as a metaphor for the bigger questions in life: who we are and what background we have. Trying to see and understand what has shaped and made us as a human being. A person in the making, described as "being kitsch", coming to terms with ones own life and behavior and learning to deal with the flaws and imperfections of it, but also how others revive us in their memory once they remember the first impression they had.
