Erik-Jan Harmens

Harmens’ Radiobooks contribution combines his poetic wordplay with his interest in personal relationships – set in an anonymous post 9/11 urban environment where a terrorist attack seems to have occurred.

“…and out of the corner of my eye I saw someone feeling in his bag, and for a moment I thought he was feeling for a mobile phone, but instead everything went white and when I opened my eyes I was lying here, I don’t know where exactly but it’s a place I’ve absolutely made my own, a home can be a terraced house, a hotel room, a filthy cellar, a clown’s caravan, but also a niche under the ground where you would never end up if someone hadn’t had the idea that this city in general and this square in particular should be grabbed by the balls, disrupted, neutralised by means of an act of terrorism.”

Love by Erik Jan Harmens was translated by Michael Blass. The story is read by David Swatling.
