Ruud Knook was conceived in the autumn of 1968 on a riverbank
by a maternity nurse and a steelyard worker. In the summer
of 1969 he saw the light, of day that is, in Klundert
(Northern Brabant). And then things went quiet for a while.
He made his debut in 1979 with 'De knikkers en het spel'
(The Rules and the Game) in Vrij Nederland magazine, which
was at that time still a newspaper. In 1988 he went to
Enschede to study the science of public administration,
where he also works as a photographer, welder, silk printer,
actor, teacher in the field of human rights, radio interviewer
and member of various bands. At the end of 1997 he moved
to Assen and the year after he moved again, to Groningen
this time, while his work took him to Hardenberg. Currently
he also works in Groningen as an advisor on socio-legal
matters for the civil servants' union AbvaKabo.
In April 2001 he won the Sixth Groningen WordSlam.
