I was at a Literature Lounge open mic event in The Poetry Cafe in London on the 19th September this year, and while I enjoyed the response to my reading … what I LOVED was the short story by author Elfie Tromp. Now I’ll be honest, I can’t remember if the petite blond was from Holland or Belgium but I do know that while her story was a bit raunchy, ‘The Queen of Rings’ was hilarious. It was also very good.
She told me afterwards that it is the only thing she has written that is in English, and that it was a testing of the waters in the UK. If this short story is anything to go by she will be a great success with English speakers too. I gather that her book will be translated soon, but I really recommend that you keep an eye open for “The Queen of Rings’. You won’t be sorry you did. I’m still grinning!
