Jan Wolkers – Het Litteken van de Dood
19th of November 2017
Just finished reading Wolkers’ very enjoyable biography. Perfectly chosen title. “Scar of Death” in English. Over 1,000
pages. Highly readable. The book also includes three sections with photos.
Jan Wolkers imo is the most important Dutch artist of the twentieth century. Sculptor, writer (novels and essays) and
painter. He excelled in all three. And I think a very pleasant person. I admire his enthousiasm, lust for life, energy
Spoken word – radio broadcast recorded during a walk among the Texel dunes in 1975!
It took his biographer Onno Blom ten years to complete this monumental work. Highly recommended!
