Fiction Is Always Non-Fiction. The Oeuvre of Jan Brokken

(Jeroen Vullings) The Low Countries – 2017, № 25, pp. 202-211

This is an article from our print archives

Why we choose Jan Brokken as an example? Because, he is certainly capable, and yet he seldom features on lists of favourites. Because he has created a respectable oeuvre, but did not make his breakthrough to the general public until his wartime story De vergelding (The Reprisal) was published in 2013. Brokken was one of the initiators of the genre of literary non-fiction in the Netherlands, and can also hold his own in the fields of autobiography and novels. He has twenty-six books to his name and we would recommend six of those to literature lovers. However, we chose Brokken as an example mainly because it is hard to find Dutcher writers than him.
