Bart Van Loo’s citybook about Chartres now online
Following the string of promising blog updates that Francophile Bart Van Loo sent into the world during his Chartres residency, his citybook is finished. With his leg in a cast, he braves the winding streets, ponders shuttle bus poems, plaster cast haikus and poule au pot, and witnesses a colourful collection of historical locals pop up around the city.
You can read Sluiertijd (The Veil of Time) now at www.city-books.eu, where you can download it for free as an e-book. The podcast version, read and recorded by the author, will also appear online soon, as will the French and English translations.
- On Saturday 16th of June 2012, between 06:00 and 07:00, early birds can listen to an extensive interview with Van Loo as part of the broadcast Nachtvluchten on Radio 1 (in Dutch). He will talk about his passion for France and the various books he has written on the subject, including Blue Blanc Rouge and Chanson. Een gezongen geschiedenis van Frankrijk (Chanson. A Sung History of France). If you’d like to listen to the interview at a later time, you can do so via the webstream or the Radio 1 podcast (available from the 20th of June).
