David Nolens (b. 1973) sees writing literature as an opportunity to think ‘in all sorts of directions’. His is a refreshing, unique literary voice that charts its own course and sets out on an informed quest. He demands an effort from his readers, but in return they receive a fascinating, entertaining and self-aware narrative. Nolens deploys an obsessive, sometimes repetitive style. His themes include the relationships between people, their search for an authentic life and the unmasking of a society founded on illusions.
