The Night Crickets

The Night Crickets is a collection of poems and a single short story in which Jaap Robben sees what we also see, but where he especially notices the hilarious or the harrowing. A bundle that cannot be categorized. For adults or children, poetry or prose? Suzanne Hertogs designed this collection and turned it into a dazzling visual whole, just as she did with Two Flies.

"A regular meter, yet norm-free and fleet of foot. Lust for life instead of somber navel gazing, earthy amazement instead of ponderous debate. (…) Robben’s strength is in his ability to combine light-heartedness and gravity, to give meaning to the mundane, to grasp the moment in a few precise words, which cut to the core of his subject."
