Earlier this year, in Nijmegen, I had the honor of receiving the Kellendonk Prize. I believe that in the word of thanks I read on that occasion I said almost everything I care to say about the joy and discomfort that winning literary prizes summons up in an author. It would be callous of me to read aloud that word of thanks here again, although, without meaning to sound arrogant, the text does come highly recommended.
