Stefan Hertmans
Star of salvation

The poet, novelist and essayist Stefan Hertmans wrote Star of salvation, a Radiobook that transports us to the other end of the planet. Now that the days of the earth are numbered, the crowd reacts hysterically or with resignation. Some are mad with fear, while others decide to party their way to death or to experience a final romance.

> Translated by Paul Vincent, read by Daniel Frankl
