Tim Krabbe is a chess as well as a cycling enthusiast and one of Holland's leading writers. His many books include the novel The Vanishing (twice filmed, in Holland and the Unites States) and The Cave (also filmed), and the cycling classic, The Rider. He lives in Amsterdam. Translator Sam Garrett, a former wire-service correspondent, is the translator of The Rider by Tim Krabbe, The Gates of Damascus by Lieve Joris and Silent Extras by Arnon Grunberg.
'Grounded in a tale of Mephistophelian friendship, THE CAVE ambitiously bursts its bounds, shifting Krabbe's expert structuring through Graham Greene-esque travelougue, haunting thriller and, finally, the kind of cosmic hymn to coincidence Alex Garland aimed for in THE TESSERACT' The Face 'Short, spare and unflinchingly dark' The Times 'Krabbe's carefully constructed narrative has a geometry so precise that the patterns buried under the surface emerge only in the final pages' New York Times 'Like that classic 1980s film THE VANISHING, based on a novel by Krabbe, [THE RIDER]is a story of dark obsession...Best read in one sitting, it is a book full of insight into the whys and wherefores of a sport that is frightening in its intensity' Sunday Times
