Ronald Giphart, whose new novel Alle Tijd will be published next week, believes that the writer's profession is being glorified too much. The 53-year-old author used to admire the literary world, but now finds it 'a bit childish'.

In conversation with AD , Giphart says that the romantic image he had of the writer's profession soon fell apart in his career. "When I was on tour in Germany in the mid-90s for Phileine says sorry , it felt like I had to play the role of writer. I thought it was awful. Because it is not a pleasant role."

The author believes that people often give writers a more important role. "In the past - I don't know if that is still the case - I started to pee in awe in their pants: oooo, a writer comes in! But the only writers can do is put words one after the other so that a book is created. And that stops the holiness of the profession. "

Giphart also notices that there are colleagues who are more arrogant and more important in public than in a private situation.

"I really do not understand why, I do not understand that discrepancy. The one - I do not say who - holds up his sunglasses when he reads aloud. You also have poets who painfully pick up their bundle, look hard and say very well:" this I made it when I was not doing well '. "

The writer calls this "laughable and fake". "The literary world that I used to admire in this way is now a bit childish to me. I think that's why books stand up to films and Netflix."
