Jan van Loy
Jan Van Loy (b. 1964) has published stories in literary magazines, among them the prestigious Dietsche Warande & Belfort. His story De hel van Jan Foster (‘Jan Foster’s hell’) was awarded the Rabobank Spring Prize 2001. He was relatively little known until the publication of his debut novel Bankvlees (‘Scraps’, 2004). This was widely reviewed and immediately won him widespread recognition as an exceptionally fluent writer with a distinctive slant on life.
