Jeroen Olyslaegers (b. 1967) writes columns, plays and prose. With his novels ‘We’ (nominated for the Gerard Walschap Prize) and ‘Winnings’ he staged a comeback in Dutch letters. In 2014 he was awarded the Arkprijs van het Vrije Woord for his work and his social engagement, and the Edmond Hustinx Prize for his theatrical oeuvre. 'WILL', an awardwinning lyrical meditation on evil and guilt, received rave reviews and international rights were quickly sold to several countries.
