BiographyStalker, the title of Joost Decorte’s debut collection, immediately evokes the classic Andrey Tarkovsky film of the same name. There, the stalker is someone who guides people through a forbidden zone on their way to a room where their ultimate desire will be fulfilled. If we read the narrator of Decorte’s book as this kind of stalker, his desire is not immediately clear. Is he looking for a decisive word, for some other person or thing, for an answer or a memory, or perhaps for God?
