Gie Bogaert (b. 1958) has gained a reputation as an author of atmospheric prose that vividly expresses the unspoken, conjuring up human desire and impossible longings in his pared-down, minimalist language. With his ‘Trilogy of the Feasible’ (Trilogie van het haalbare) he follows in the American storytelling tradition set by Raymond Carver. In 2013, his book ‘Nora’s Digression’ (Noora’s dwaling) was published, followed in 2016 by the mosaic novel ‘Roosevelt’.
