“The grand-dame of poetry in the Netherlands” – Only her nonchalant humor beats her lyric capabilites. And the combination is more than entertaining which she very well proved at Poesiefestival 2015 in Berlin at VERSchmuggel on June 23rd. It was a great improvisation x Oswald Egger. Outside I had the chance to take a few photos of Anneke Brassinga when I met her, smoking.

If you were to go for a coffee with an author which one would you choose?
1 Berthold Brecht
2 Paul Celan
3 Günter Grass
Thanks a lot Mrs. Brassinga! It was a pleasure and an honor to meet such an elegant and humorous poetra!
