Leuk, een literaire avond! Voor mij een mooie gelegenheid om enkele van mijn favoriete auteurs in het zonnetje te zetten. Voor Wim werkte dat heel anders: het blijkt veel eenvoudiger te zijn om leuke songs bij elkaar te zoeken, en daar dan een boektitel bij te vinden… Mooi toch hoe je met zo’n simpel thema toch heel verschillende benaderingen kunt nemen!

6. Rose of Avalanche “Velveteen”
Daniel Marks

7. Love and Rockets “Holy Fool”
Joanne Harris
This story has been in my mind, in one form or another, for quite some time. I finished an early version of it before I wrote Chocolat, and came back to it five years later, having realized that I still liked the characters and the story, and that I wanted to see it completed. It precedes (and complements) Chocolat in a number of ways. Firstly, my central character, Juliette, has many things in common with Vianne Rocher (most especially in terms of her relationship with her mother and her young daughter). She might easily be an ancestor of Vianne (LeMerle, too, fits in with Reynaud’s ancestry), as she too is a traveller, a witch of sorts, and has a number of unorthodox ideas on spirituality.

8. The chameleons “swamp thing”
Alan Moore

When “Joe” turns out to be a hundred-pound beast who only responds to commands in Slovak, Van is at the end of her rope-until she realizes that sometimes life needs to get more complicated before it can get better.
