The most important literary prize in Flanders goes to Mark Schaevers for ‘Orgelman’ (Organ Man), a nonfiction book. That is a wonderful recognition for a flourishing genre in Flemish literature. Illustrator Mattias De Leeuw went to Beijing to promote the Chinese translation of ‘De Steltenloper’ (The Stilt Walker). Following the recent dramatic events in the Mediterranean, the problem of boat refugees is once again a topic of debate. We present two Flemish novels on the complex matter. Furthermore, we tell you all about the second edition of ‘Bookshelf Essentials’ on contemporary classics, and zoom in on ‘Junker’, a graphic novel by Simon Spruyt that has recently been translated in French. And we would like to introduce Aneta Dantcheva-Manolova and Stana Anzelj, the translators who are staying at the Translators' House in Antwerp.
