Herman Brusselmans – ‘Volkskrant will never review my book again, I can say with certainty’

“Of course you have to respect everyone, but it must not get out of hand”, writer Herman Brusselmans tells in MISHA! that he feels that there is less and less room for incorrect jokes.

In his work and statements the writer is not averse to an insult. “For me it’s a stylistic issue. Just like I write love passages or about sex. It shouldn’t be corny or cliché. Insulting is part of my profession.”

He is not thanked for it, he sees that reflected in the increasing hate reactions he receives on social media. Still, it doesn’t stop him from joking about, for example, the LGBTIQ+ community. “I read that there are 18 genders between man and woman. Then your head sometimes tilts. What should you call it? You can no longer call a woman a woman, because everyone is half woman and half man. Then I think: kiss my balls.”

The art of insulting was there early on, he says. “My mother regularly tells people that when I was 5 I was cursing and berating people at the entrance to our yard. Until the foam was at my lips.”

Whether that is the reason why it is canceled by some Dutch reviewers cannot be proven, but: “I can say with certainty that the Volkskrant will never review a book by me again. Maybe it’s because I offended someone or the newspaper? I can’t remember that. I don’t remember that.”

It doesn’t bother him much, says Brusselmans. “Of course the publicity of the review can help sell my books. But I’m 64, have written 85 books, some of which have been lauded. Then I decide: I have nothing to complain about.”
