A well-known journalist, Jan Brokken made his debut as a writer in 1984 with the largely autobiographical novel De provincie (The Province), the story of a youth spent in the countryside, which was made into a successful film. He has published gripping travel books about, among others, Africa, Indonesia and Curaçao, and is the author of the acclaimed and bestselling novels De blinde passagiers (The Blind Passengers, 1996), De droevige kampioen (The Sad Champion, 1998) and Jungle Rudy (2006). His work, which has been translated into several languages, has been compared in the international press to that of Graham Greene and Bruce Chatwin.
