message 1: by Matthias (new)

Matthias Any Belgian French literature? :)


message 2: by Nickie (new)

Nickie @ Matthias:
Of couse, there are plenty of very good Belgian French writers but this page was obviously created by someone of the Flemish community of Belgium.

Some of the most famous names are Georges Simenon, Amélie Nothomb, Marguerite Yourcenar, Jacqueline Harpman,François Weyergans, Thomas Gunzig, Xavier Deutsch, Francis Dannemark...
See: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_d%...


message 3: by Matthias (new)

Matthias Hi Nickie, thanks for your comment! However, I don't think it is relevant that I am Flemish. I only added 3 Belgian books I read, and everyone is free to add more Belgian books he has read. Unfortunately, no Belgian French books so far. However, I do see some books from the Netherlands :)


message 4: by Rosa (new)

Rosa Tintin?


message 5: by Geert (last edited Mar 30, 2019 10:59PM) (new)

Geert Joris Thea Beckman is Dutch..


message 6: by Gillis (new)

Gillis I agree: Thea Beckman is a Dutch author, meaning she"s from the Netherlands, not from Belgium. Her books shouldn't be on this list...
