Peter Terrin

Peter Terrin -from the novel – the murderer -born in 1968 Peter is considered one of the leading voices of his generation of Flemish writers often compared to Kafka and Wilfred Frederick Hermans and Albert Camus and has twice been nominated for the Belgian book prize ako . this short piece follows Ferdinand in a unnamed place and unnamed time he talks about his neighbours and why he’d murder them as curfews are in force he sneaks about in the shadows . This story remind me of Kafka a bit as your dropped in nowhere and don’t really know whats going on ,it also reminded me of the beligan film man bites dog there is a similar coldness in Ferdinand to the main character in man bites dog .There is only this it appears available in english at moment .I hope if this an example of his writing it is translated soon in to english .
