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. Her debut, ‘We, The Foam’ is more than just a compilation of short stories: the main characters and plot lines are intertwined to form an animistic, truly authentic universe. Her imagination knows no bounds; she sweeps her readers up in an eccentric and surreal universe which revolves around outsiders. Van Thuyne is a true linguistic virtuoso: she does not shy away from deploying a huge arsenal of styles and has been praised for her refreshing approach.
