Remco Campert is a writer of considerable standing in Holland who came to prominence in the 1950s. A chronicler of alternative Amsterdam life in fiction, as a columnist in a national newspaper, as a film-maker, and above all as a poet, Campert gained a following of English speakers through this translation of his quiet and quirky poetry.
