Cees Nooteboom, best known for his novel The Following Story,is one of the most distinguished and significant authors living in the Netherlands today. Self-Portrait of an Other is one of the most unique and innovative works in his oeuvre. Written in response to and published together with a series of drawings by the Berlin-based artist Max Neumann, the book draws on Nooteboom’s personal reflections —his arsenal of memories, dreams, fantasies, landscapes, stories and nightmares— and presents a set of prose poems that complements and echoes Neumann’s work. Full of striking scenes and disturbing images, the poems, driven by the logic of dreams, create the self-portrait of the title. Available now for the first time in English, Self-Portrait of an Other brings together both the images and the text inspired by them, creating an unusual and creative poetic collection. Praise for Nooteboom“[Nooteboom’s] books seem metaphors for art itself.”—Ed Park, Village Voice

About the Author:

Cees Nooteboom is one of Europe’s leading living authors. His poetry, novels and  travel literature have been translated into many languages.

Review:

Cees Nooteboom's lucid poetry is paired with Max Neumann's series of abstract drawings to stimulate a creative experience while tapping into dreams, fantasies, realities, and the in-between. The prose complements the illustrations, reverberating off the brightly colored pages opposite. (World Literature Today)
