Writer in Residence Book Bundle: Thomas Heerma van Voss


8 in stock



To celebrate Dutch author Thomas Heerma Van Voss‘ (virtual!) writer’s residency at The National Centre Writing here in Norwich, we’ve curated a very special book bundle.

Working with the brilliant Kate Griffin at the National Centre for Writing, we asked Thomas to recommend three Dutch books – which have been translated into English – that he thinks English-speaking readers will love.

We’ve popped these carefully-chosen titles into a pack along with the recently-released ‘Verzet’ chapbook series from UEA-based Strangers Press (which celebrates new Dutch voices, and includes a translation of one of Thomas’ own stories!) AND a hand-written letter from Thomas to you, the reader, explaining his book choices.

So, a re-cap – this pack includes:

  • Three books chosen by Thomas:
    1. Chameleon | Nachtroer by Charlotte Van Den Broeck (a poetry collection)
    2. Cheese by Willem Elsschot (a novel)
    3. The Following Scan Will Last Five Minutes by Lieke Marsan (poetry/essay)
  • The complete set of Verzet chapbooks (all eight!) from Strangers Press (including Thomas’ own Thank You For Being With Us)
  • A hand-written letter from Thomas explaining his book choices!

It’s an incredible bundle filled to the brim with amazing Dutch writing, perfect for Norwich bookworms who would like to do a little armchair travelling to a place and culture intertwined with our own city’s rich history…

We have a very limited stock of these exclusive book bundles at a fantastic price – just £60 plus p&p – so be sure to order immediately if you’re interested!
