Christophe Vekeman (b. 1972) is a writer, poet and performer. He also has a weekly literary slot on Belgian national radio. Vekeman’s universe is populated by rather unenviable characters who succeed in eliciting sympathy from the reader because of the author’s humorous undertone. The elegance of his style and his keen eye for hilarious details keep his prose light, despite the difficult and sobering questions that he poses.
