Lopen met Lebowski #8 - Erik Jan Harmens

Vrienden en vriendinnen van de literatuur! Vandaag gaat redacteur Jasper Henderson aan de wandel met Erik Jan Harmens, om te spreken over zijn nieuwe roman Door het licht. Een gesprek over vrijwillige en minder vrijwillige herinneringen, prikkels, liedjes en reclamejingles in zijn hoofd; over hoe je tijd kunt verkwisten zonder het gevoel te hebben dat je dood wil; over kleine dingen groot maken en grote dingen klein; over angstbeelden en wensbeelden; over het hebben van ‘het’ en over de entree van de liefde. Amusez-vous!
