Marc Van Staen has written The Bourgmestre of Brussels (in French), a collection of short stories in which he listens to and observes the people of Brussels. It is they who set the scene in a stream of discoveries, between black thriller and joyful nostalgia. In a game of musical chairs, a survivor, an influencer, a painter, a banker and a restaurateur take to the back alleys of the deception. We laugh a lot, and there’s a tear in the corner of our eyes. Le Scalde Brussels editions (FR).
