About this product
- DescriptionEddy, the altar boy, writes as a 55 year old. Flashback to 1963 when he meets Raoul, also 15 at the time, in his grandfather's orchard, they start calling the Garden of Eden. Soon they run away but their adolescent full-on love affair turns bad and they do t meet up until 20 years later, when Eddy is living in Florence. They pick up the pieces of the love, they once shared, but their new relationship unfolds like a drama that inexorably moves towards a glorious end. The grandeur of their rekindled love and the doomed end show us that the writing on the wall was always there but body had the sponge to wipe it all away.

As a precocious adolescent he published a number of short stories in various literary publications and wrote his first novel The Man With Feet of Clay in Dutch when he was 16. It sank without trace. He lived in London from 1968 until 1974 when he moved to Spain to teach himself to paint.

He is one of Holland's foremost realist painters with an international reputation. His work has been shown in more than fifty gallery and museum exhibitions, around the world.
