bookshelves: #88 Paul Beers

In bookshelves i send out an invitation to someone for presenting his/her favorite bookshelf or writer. To let them explain their choice or let the shelf speak for itself. Bookshelves is concerned with collecting, collections and the sincere love for books. In bookshelves nodig ik iemand uit om zijn/haar favoriete boekenplank of schrijver te tonen. Om iets over hun keuze te vertellen of de plank te laten “spreken”. Bookshelves gaat over verzamelen, collecties en de oprechte liefde voor boeken. Today/Vandaag bookshelves: #88 Paul Beers

Paul Beers(1935) is literair vertaler.

“ik stuur u het vier-minuten-filmpje dat mijn dochter over ‘mijn’ drie belangrijkste auteurs heeft gemaakt: The Thirtieth Year. Dat opent met mijn boekenkasten en zoomt vervolgens in op de boeken van Witold Gombrowicz (zojuist bij IJzer herdrukt), Ingeborg Bachmann en Robert Menasse.
