Jeroen Brouwers was a Dutch journalist and writer.

From 1964 to 1976 Brouwers worked as an editor at Manteau publishers in Brussels. In 1964 he made his literary debut with Het mes op de keel (The Knife to the Throat).

He won the Ferdinand Bordewijk Prijs in 1989 for De zondvloed, and in 1995 the Prix Femina for International works for his book Bezonken rood (Sunken Red). In 2007 he refused the Dutch Literature Prize (Prijs der Nederlandse Letteren) - the highest literary accolade in the Dutch-speaking world - because he considered the prize money of €16,000 too low for all his work.

“Niets bestaat dat niet iets anders aanraakt.”
Jeroen Brouwers, Bezonken rood

“Vanaf dat moment ben ik verdwaald. Mijn afkeer van het leven en mijn verlangen om er niet te zijn. Vanaf dat moment weet ik dat ik verder, voortaan, altijd het liefst alleen zou wensen te zijn, zonder mij aan iemand of iets te hoeven binden, want ik wil niet zien hoe mijn liefde en de schoonheid die ik koester worden verwoest of beschadigd.”
Jeroen Brouwers, Bezonken rood

“Ik behoor tot het soort mensen dat niet 'gelukkig' kan zijn : ziek van altijddurende onrust, ziek van altijddurende angst, het liefst versuft door pillen, het liefst stomdronken, het liefst slapend, het liefst afwezig.”
Jeroen Brouwers, Bezonken rood
