This author's Radio Book:

Clark Accord
The creation

The Bijlmer, Paramaribo, G├╝ell Park, Schlossgarten and so on. Clark Accord's Radiobook is a poetic story in fragments in which a homeless man pictures his homeland of Surinam and his wanderings through Europe. He remembers the enormous contrast between the cold concrete of the Bijlmer and the warm sepia of the street in Paramaribo. But his daydreams are disturbed. In the park that has become his home, young artists are working on a cryptic project of which he has unintentionally become a part.
