David Nolens (b. 1973) sees writing literature as an opportunity to think ‘in all sorts of directions’. He made his debut in 2002 with the novel ‘Vrint’. Since then, several novels, short stories and the poetic polemic ‘International Bakery (Formerly Cinema Royale)’ have seen the light. Nolens deploys an obsessive, sometimes repetitive style in his work. His themes include the relationships between people, their search for an authentic life and the unmasking of a society founded on illusions.
