Biography

Belgian novelist whose ironic and clear-eyed works signaled a change in the direction of Belgian literature.

He was hospitalized frequently, writing plainly about the subject of mental illness, which had hitherto been taboo. Eventually, he was unable to master his self-doubt, and he succumbed to his suicidal tendencies.

He received the triennial prize of the novel for The Earwig Luxembourg. On 10 April 1932, he died for having taken an overdose of sleeping pills.
