Pol Hoste (b. 1947) was raised by communist parents in the 1960s and the rigours of that environment left him with an analytical mind and with stories to tell. His breakthrough came in 1987 with ‘Feminine Singular’. High Key is a postmodern novel, a collection of text types: monologues, dances and stories. If you check-in with Hoste you are guaranteed an adventurous trip, an experiment, an essay on language and text and self-analysis.
