Peter Verhelst
Legion

Verhelst’s language and imagery has been described as poetic, cryptic, sensual and bizarre. All these adjectives apply to his Radiobooks story. A group of archaeologists race against time to recover treasures from an ancient city on the banks of the Euphrates.

“We’re following in the footsteps of the occupier, who surrounded himself with his own stories, told in brightly coloured tiles. With every new village we expose, we can hear the music better, the laughter, the sweet nothings the Romans whispered to each other in the shadowy recesses of the atrium. We dream their dreams…”

Legion by Peter Verhelst was translated by Sherry Marx (also translator of Verhelst’s novel Tongue Cat published in English by Farrar, Straus & Giroux.) The story is read by Jacky Spears.
