The Dutch author Cees Nooteboom is one of the great masters of European literature. His work has been translated into more than thirty languages. He is a poet, romanticist and traveller, always roaming and endlessly curious. After all, you get to know yourself when you travel. The committed traveller finds himself in the eye of the storm. Nooteboom has a predilection for Spain, Latin America, but also Germany: In the late 80s, he lived in Berlin and witnessed the fall of the Berlin Wall.
