Farewell Jan Wolkers

This morning when I went online, I read the sad news that one of the most interesting character in the Dutch literary world has passed away today. Writer, sculpture, painter, artist Jan Wolkers died peacefully in his sleep at the age of 81.
He made a huge impact on the way writers were perceived, and had a huge influence on a new generation of writers after the late 60s when his books came out. Almost all his books were made into movies, and his provocative work shook up the Dutch society. If you can find his work translated in English, please check it out.
Rest in peace Jan.
