Yves Petry (b. 1967) studied mathematics and philosophy. He was awarded the BNG Literature Prize for ‘The Straggler’ (De achterblijver, 2006), a novel about artificial intelligence and human emotions. His disconcerting novel 'The Virgin Marino' attracted a large readership and won the prestigious Libris Literature Prize. 'Love So to Speak', a lucid book about a writer in a love triangle, about love and resentment, is his sixth novel.
