Writer Gustaaf Peek weaves through the intimacies we usually don’t share. With a serene style, his novels create a new mythical awareness in a world full of contractions. Displaying an ability to follow the lives of people, Gustaaf excavates the outer reaches of human experience. Like two lovers who live apart, and meet in the anonymity of hotel rooms. The interplay of rejection and attempted reconciliation is brushed against explicit sex scenes, underscored by loneliness and loss. Even though we can never truly access the intimacy of characters, there is an inner-world to discover out there, far from romantic clichés and plots.
