Hans Kilian was born to the world on that unexpectedly nice 20th October 1958 in Zeist. He studied anthropology in Utrecht and Dutch teacher training in Rotterdam. He is a poet, prose writer, critic and publisher. In 2000 he made his debut as a novelist with Heksenwerk (Devil of A Job) with Servo in Assen, where earlier his much praised book of short stories Lach & Sterf (Laugh & Die) had appeared. After his poetry volume Woorden als brood (Words like bread; Zuid&Noord, Beringen) Triakel was published in 2001, an extensive collection of verse, as part 36 of the well-designed series 'Muzensprokkels' (Muse Pickings) with Het Prieeltje Publ. in Diest (Belgium). He has recently added nr. 39 to that series with the volume Zelfs de duisternis ziet men niet met dichte ogen (We don't even see the darkness with our eyes closed).
Kilian lives and works in Gorinchem.
