Griet Op de Beeck
Griet Op de Beeck (b. 1973) has been a fixture on the Dutch-language best-seller lists since her debut. Selling hundreds of thousands of copies, her books have been adapted for both the big screen and the stage. Op de Beeck is known for her personal narratives and writing style, which are devoid of cynicism or irony. And the fact that readers recognise themselves in her work only adds to her popularity. Many of her characters struggle in life, but ultimately, after many trials and tribulations, choose themselves.
