Saskia de Coster
Saskia de Coster (b. 1976) is an artist, playwright and regular participant in television debates, but above all she the author of a unique literary oeuvre. Her family chronicle We and Me became a bestseller and was nominated for just about every Dutch-language book award there is. The more personal and semi-autobiographical Night Parents is an ode to love and non-biological parenthood. Characteristic of De Coster’s oeuvre are the striking images and profound stories. Most of her novels have been or are being translated.
