Gerard Reve

Gerard Reve (1923–2006) is considered one of the greatest postwar Dutch authors, and was also the first openly gay writer in the country’s history. A complicated and controversial character, Reve is also hugely popular and critically acclaimed — his 1947 debut The Evenings was chosen as one of the nation’s 10 favorite books by the readers of a leading Dutch newspaper, while the Society of Dutch Literature ranked it as the Netherlands’s best novel of all time.
