One of Harlingen/Harns famous people that were born there is the writer Simon Vestdijk (1898-1971). He is, at least was, a very important writer and nowadays seems to be a victim of oblivion. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Vestdijk. Do we need to say more, much more, comprehensive in Dutch? He wrote around...
...200 books, causing a fellow writer to describe him as ‘the man that can write faster than God is able to read’. Eight strongly autobiographic novels, the protagonist named Anton Wachter, are at the core of Simon Vestdijk’s oeuvre. A little statue in Harlingen’s/Harns’ centre depicts Vestdijk’s alter ego. Until next week – who knows where we are by then?
