Elfie Tromp has published two novels: Goeroe (Guru) and Underdog. The latter was nominated for the BNG prize for literature and the Dioraphte literatour prize. In 2013 she received the VPRO (a Dutch television network) Bagagedrager, a price for young travel journalists. She writes columns for Metro, is a regular contributor to Vrij Nederland (a Dutch weekly), does interviews for VPRO and makes theater.
After an emotionally turbulent year Elfie’s practice suddenly started to include poetry, graphic novels and dark confessional literature. Thematically all centred around the cruelty of love. What better place to dive into this than the city that forms the stage for A Streetcar Named Desire?
