The young brain of Roelof ten Napel (Joure, 1993) manoeuvres skilfully between words and numbers. In 2014, at the age of 21, the writer and mathematician published his debut, Constellaties (Constellations), for which he was awarded the C.C.S. Crone scholarship, and received high praise in the media. In recent years, his stories have appeared in, among others, The Revisor, The Titan and Tirade, and he writes about poetry on Klercks.nl. His new novel Het Leven Zelf (Life Itself) will be published in October.
On Friday Roelof ten Napel will share the stage with Gerda Blees, Sytske van Koeveringe, Fatma Aydemir and Diego Zúñiga. On Saturday he will be part of The Chronicles. During The Chronicles his work will be translated by Lisa Mensing.
