Erwin Mortier (b. 1965) writes novels, poems, columns and theatre texts and has been steadily building an oeuvre of a consistently high literary standard. From the outset, Mortier’s talent was recognised by literary critics and he quickly established a reputation as one of the leading authors of his generation. He has been praised for his sophisticated and sharp pen, his accurate and sensitive observations and his unbridled linguistic virtuosity. A grand stylist, his evocative descriptions bring past worlds brilliantly to life.
