February 5, 2016

We’re delighted to announce that Place Lamartine, a novel about Vincent van Gogh by Jeroen Blokhuis, is going to be available in English at the end of 2016.

Place Lamartine is set during years Vincent van Gogh lived in Arles, when he painted several of his masterpieces including the sunflower paintings.

Jeroen Blokhuis has published short stories in Dutch literary magazines including Passionate and KortVerhaal. Place Lamarine is his debut novel and was published in Dutch in September 2015.

Asja Novak was born in 1993 in Croatia. In 2008 she moved to London to study art and languages.  She now lives and works in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
