Erik Vlaminck
Oversized domestic waste and the neighbours

In Oversized domestic waste and the neighbours an older man complains to an unknown conversation partner, in an unwittingly comic way, about his neighbours, his wife and the rest of the world. In this Radiobook by Erik Vlaminck the sting is in the tail.

Erik Vlaminck

Erik Vlaminck (b. 1954) is a novelist and playwright. He has worked as a theatre-maker for various professional companies but also has a great deal of experience in the amateur theatre. Vlaminck, a descendant of the famous Flemish painter Maurice de Vlaminck, set out in search of memories of his parents, grandparents and great-grandparents on both his mother's and father's sides. He has used these memories to create a mosaic, an intriguing roman-fleuve comprising six novels. Although each is independent, together they form a picture of a twentieth-century Flanders that was in danger of being erased but has now been given a permanent face through Vlaminck's six-part series. In a discussion of part two, Wolven huilen in De Stem, his series was compared to Hugo Claus' magnum opus, but in miniature.
