Recent title – English material 

Roosevelt, 2016

Press on Roosevelt:

An outstanding book. – de Morgen

Uncovering the heart of the city and its inhabitants, Roosevelt is an ode to both Antwerp and to storytelling in its purest sense. – FLANDERS TODAY

In Roosevelt Bogaert once again demonstrates his literary power. He is the pointillist who tells small stories in a great way. He manages to capture in beautiful miniatures the tragedies and bright spots in everyday lives. **** – HET NIEUWSBLAD
