The misfortunates : a novel by Dimitri Verhulst( Book )

62 editions published between 2006 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sobriety and moderation are alien concepts to the men in Dimmy's family. Useless in all other respects, his three uncles have a rare talent for drinking, a flair for violence, and an unwavering commitment to the pub. And his father Pierre is no slouch either. Within hours of his son's birth, Pierre plucks him from the maternity ward, props him on his bike, and takes him on an introductory tour of the village bars. His mother soon leaves them to it and as Dimmy grows up amid the stench of stale beer, he seems destined to follow the path of his forebears and make a low-life career in inebriation, until he begins to piece together his own plan for the future. Bringing to life the shambolic upbringing that The Guardian describes as, "the odd, ugly, excremental poetry of their grubby lives," The Misfortunates "can be unexpectedly tender as well as uncomfortably funny ... this novel continually surprises and intrigues.""--

Désiré Cordier - mild-mannered former librarian, put-upon husband, lover of boules - is losing his mind. Or is he? Happily tucked away in the Winterlight Home for the Elderly, Désiré is looking forward to a quiet retirement with the other forgetful residents, safe in the knowledge that no one knows he's faking his memory loss. And as if there weren't reasons enough to opt out of the modern world, it would be worth it just to see Rosa Rozendaal again - the love of Désiré's youth, the one who got away. But dementia isn't all fun and games. There's a former war criminal hiding out in the home; once-beautiful Rosa might be too far gone to return Désiré's ardour; and our hero soon begins to suspect he might not be the only one in Winterlight who's acting a part ... A tender love story of demented minds and honourable hearts, and a razor-sharp satire of the indignities of old age and the callousness of caregiving
Madame Verona comes down the hill by Dimitri Verhulst( Book )

32 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Years ago, Madame Verona and her husband built a home for themselves on a hill in a forest above a small village. There they lived in isolation, practising their music, and chopping wood to see them through the cold winters. When Mr Verona died, the locals might have expected that the legendary beauty would return to the village, but Madame Verona had enough wood to keep her warm during the years it would take to make a cello - the instrument her husband loved - and in the meantime she had her dogs for company. And then one cold February morning, when the last log has burned, Madame Verona sets off down the village path, with her cello and her memories, knowing that she will have no strength to climb the hill again

Spoo Pee Doo by Dimitri Verhulst( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in Dutch and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Europa staat in brand, maar onverschillig bestellen we nog een glas. Verdedigen we onze vrijheden, of verdedigen we onze leegte? Terreur is niet blind, sterker nog, hij heeft het gemunt op onze westerse verworvenheden. Hebben we onze monsters zelf gevoed? De urgentie aan antwoorden en oplossingen kan niet worden ingelost, wel kunnen wij de aanslagen van gruwel beantwoorden met aanslagen van schoonheid, aanslagen van literatuur. De inkt moet vloeien, omdat ook hem de droogte dreigt te worden opgelegd. Over de botsing tussen godsdienstfanatisme en vrijheden, van wat dan ook

"Ik had ooit genoeg van het menselijk lawaai, en verdwijnen zou dat gevoel nooit helemaal, maar ik was te slap in mijn mensenhaat. Ik ging kapot in deze stilte, was karakterieel niet opgewassen tegen het meer dat daar prachtig en rimpelloos lag te wezen, het ruisen van de bomen, en ik was te koppig om het aan mezelf toe te geven."

Christ's entry into Brussels : in the year 2000 and something, or thereabouts by Dimitri Verhulst( Book )

It is announced that Jesus Christ is to visit Belgium in a few weeks time, on its national day, the 21st of July. Coincidentally, our narrator's mother dies and his marriage ends. Feeling very low, and fluctuating between resentment, irony and cynicism, he reports on the events and on the behaviour of his compatriots. The authorities squabble about how to receive Christ. They find an eleven-year-old girl in the asylum seekers' centre to act as Christ's Aramaic interpreter (Arabic, Aramaic, it's practically the same, right?). Neighbours resolve ancient feuds and communities gather together to confess and forgive en masse, no matter the depravity of the crime. As the date draws near, the whole city brightens up there's never been a nicer time to have a Second Coming. This new novel by Dimitri Verhulst resembles a quirky pamphlet and a moral fable. The narrator considers himself part of the 'lost generation', which has no illusions about the state of the world both in absurd Belgium and in the distressingly imperfect world beyond. He puts a finger on the symptomatic fever blisters of contemporary society, of the so-called 'malcontent mass'. With his bizarre imaginings, harsh criticisms and stylistic verve, he exposes an embarrassing reality, which often makes you laugh conspiratorially, and then cry
