Koen Peeters (b. 1959) is the author of a discreet but increasingly impressive oeuvre to which he has added more than 10 books since his debut in 1988 with ‘Conversations with K’. Great European Novel was shortlisted for the Libris Literature Prize and was translated in several languages. A Thousand Hills, about Rwanda and its genocide, won him the prestigious E. du Perron Prize. The people healer, about a professor of anthropology won both the ECI Literature Prize and the ECI Readers’ Prize. A room in Ostend is a fascinating seaside resort seen through the eyes of writers and painters.
