He lived with parents in the village Arkel, near Gorinchem, until he went to study Arabic language and literature at the University of Amsterdam. He received the "E. du Perronprijs" for his 1996 debut novel De voeten van Abdullah/The feet of Abdullah. Later works include "Momo" and "Solomon", in 2001 "Een beer in bontjas/A bear in fur" and play adaptions "Apollien, De slachting in Parijs/The massacre in Paris and Othello" and "Het monster met de twee ruggen : een kameropera/The monster with two backs: a libretto". For his 2004 novel Paravion he won the 2004 "De Gouden Uil" prize. In 2009, after years of silence, his novel "Spotvogel" appeared.
