Igor by Kolja Aertgeerts
Igor by Kolja Aertgeerts
Als een Vlaamse Bernlef, met een vleug duif à la Süskind, misschien pro forma maar met het beoogde effect, gidst Kolja Aertgeerts ons door het Antwerpen van de jaren negentig, het hoofpersonage Peter achterna, dat eigenlijk helemaal het hoofdpersonage niet blijkt te zijn.
