Flemish writer, born in Antwerp. He worked as a teacher and art critic before dedicating himself to writing full time. His work is associated with Magic Realism, a literary movement that is related to Surrealism, which links ordinary elements with dream-like sequences.
His most famous book is De komst van Joachim Stiller / The coming of Joachim Stiller (1960), in which a mysterious person, named Joachim Stiller, appears as a redeemer, under circumstances reminiscent of the death of Jesus.
