Alex van Galen
Alex van Galen studied literature at Utrecht University. He gained fame as a screenplay writer of many successful television shows including as Rozengeur & Wodka lime, 't Zonnetje in Huis and SamSam.
His first novel was inspired by European History and Wagner’s opera De Opvolger (The Successor). In 2010 he released his second novel, Duivelssonate (Devil's Sonata). This book is a thriller that your Booktunes editor read in at one sitting. We know there is a German edition of his latest novel coming up, we can only hope that his work will be translated to English soon. What about Devil's Sonata - the movie?
