Cees Nooteboom

One of the most outstanding Dutch writers, translator, poet, traveller, listed many times among the candidates for the Nobel Prize in Literature. His first independent expedition resulted in the book entitled Philip and the Others (1995), for which he received the Anne Frank Prize. His novels are filled with literary references, he also uses polyphonic narration, typical of postmodernism. His first book, Rituals, published after nearly 20 years, was an immediate success and was adapted for the screen. In Poland, he is known for works such as Roads to Santiago, Nomad’s Hotel, and Paradise Lost. On 25th October Agnieszka Oczko will present Cees Nooteboom's work.
