About the book
No writer commands the art of the ode like David Van Reybrouck. Since early 2015 he has regularly sung the praises of something, someone or someplace on the website of in-depth news website The Correspondent. Be it the ex, the spring, Leonard Cohen, the cleaning lady, failure, Kofi Annan, or, of course, love, in his subtle and poignant odes he drops his guard completely. Van Reybrouck’s pieces have been shared many times over and bring thousands of readers moments of tranquillity, astonishment and beauty. In Odes they come together for the first time.
