Hassan Bahara
Life in flat block number 5

In the Radiobook by Hassan Bahara we meet Kamiel, a boy from the suburbs, who divides his time between unsavoury characters and a highly respectable school. He spends the afternoon in a doorway where two of his friends sell their wares in between smoking, composing raps and playing on the Game Boy. The rich, white outside world occasionally visits the doorway, which is wreathed in smoke and the smell of dope, either as customers or to engage in cynical discussions about the pros and cons of a conventional lifestyle. Kamiel is trapped in a no mans land between life in flat number 5 and the future his parents have planned for him.
