Elvis Peeters (b. 1957) writes fiction, poetry, scripts and children’s books. He is also a musician and performer. In his novels, he succeeds in raising a fascinating moral issue through what appears to be just a story. He reached a wide audience with The Uncountables. His controversial novel Us received a great deal of press attention, and is filmed in 2017. Hunt depicts the biotope of man as an animal among animals. Hinterland is a claustrophobic novel about solidarity and individuality, which makes us think about the way we treat the earth and our fellow man. Elvis Peeters writes his books together with his wife, Nicole Van Bael.
