Caro Van Thuyne
Caro Van Thuyne (b. 1970) learned the craft of writing, she says, by reading like a maniac. Her essays and short stories have been published in various Dutch and Flemish magazines. In 2018 her debut collection We, the Foam came out. The book is more than just a compilation of short stories: the main characters and plot lines are intertwined to form an animistic, truly authentic universe. It received widespread acclaim in the press and made the longlist of the ANV Debuutprijs. Van Thuyne is currently working on her first novel.
