He made his debut as a novelist in 2001, with De Vuistslag (The Punch; Meulenhoff).
These 'Poetry in Motion' clips, as he did them at Lowlands 2001, and especially the clips plus rather raucous band, like in Tivoli in Utrecht, made him enjoy performing. So book Boog now!
On 27 April 2001 it was announced that his first volume was nominated for the C. Buddingh'prize for new Dutch poetry. And lo and behold, during Poetry International in Rotterdam, he was awarded the prize, consisting of 1250 euro and a fountain pen. And rightly so.
In November 2002 both his second novel and his second poetry volume were published, resp. entitled De warmte van het zelfbedrog (The warmth of self-deception) and Zo helder zagen we hetzelfde (We saw the same so clearly), both with Cossee publishers.
