FUNKTION

INDUSTRY TALKS DIMITRI VERHULST

JOKE VAN LEEUWEN

Dimitri Verhulst (b. 1972) made his debut in 1999 with a collection of stories entitled De kamer hiernaast (The Room Next Door). This was followed by Niets, niemand en redelijk stil (Nothing, No one and Reasonably Quiet, 2001) and De verveling van de keeper (The Boredom of the Goalkeeper, 2002). His novels Problemski Hotel (Problemski Hotel, 2003) and De helaasheid der dingen (The Alasness of Things, 2006) were very successful and have been translated into many languages.

Joke van Leeuwen (b. 1952), who studied history at the University of Brussels, writes stories and poems for children which she illustrates herself, writes prose and poetry for adults, and performs in cabaret and theatre. She has received numerous awards, including the prestigious Theo Thijssen Prize, the Dutch State Prize for youth literature, which is awarded triennially. In her work, Joke van Leeuwen champions the uninhibited way children look at the world, which results in fighting against repression and narrow-mindedness.

In 2008, when the film adaptation of De helaasheid der dingen appeared, it was well received by film festivals and distributed internationally. Verhulst then wrote Mevrouw Verona daalt de heuvel af (Madame Verona Comes Down the Hill, 2006), Godverdomse dagen op een godverdomse bol (Goddamned Days on a Goddamned Sphere, 2008), and De laatste liefde van mijn moeder (My Mother’s Last Love, 2010). Verhulst also published a collection of poetry: Liefde, tenzij anders vermeld (Love, Unless Otherwise Stated, 2001).

A number of her stories center around a quest, such as Deesje (Dee Dee, 1985), Wijd weg (Far Away, 1991), and Iep! (Cheep!, 1996). Joke van Leeuwen’s work demonstrates that high quality literature can be accessible to general audiences.

The film adaptation won the Dutch Golden Calf film award. De ordening (The Arrangement, 1998) was nominated for the Libris Literature Prize, and the film adaptation was nominated for a Golden Calf. De oesters van Nam Kee (Oysters at Nam Kee, 2000) was made into a movie which won the 2001 F. Bordewijk Prize.

Since 1970, he has illustrated numerous children’s books. He received the prestigious Max Velthuijs Prijs for his oeuvre. In 2005, he won the Woutertje Pieterse Prijs for his book Waar is de taart? (Where’s the Cake?), a wordless picture book which was also nominated for the German Youth Literature Prize in 2007.

His most recent novels are Paradiso and Een soort familie (A Kind of Family) which was nominated for the AKO Literature Prize. De offers (Sacrifice, 2014) will be published by C. Bertelsmann in Germany this autumn.
