WRITER IN RESIDENCE – DONALD NIEDEKKER

I’m a dutch novelist and poet. The novel I published in 2014, As a tiger, as a snake, is told by a poem. In Skagaströnd I worked on a novel about a dutch sailor who’s buried in the Arctic in the 16th century and who’s now, while the permafrost is melting, waking up.  The image is of the cover of a book that will be published in September, about my morning talks with a crow.
