An American reads Kaas by Willem Elsschot, as adapted by Dick Matena into a graphic novel. This is my first blog about Belgium and the second about reading in Dutch. The first one was Learning Dutch with Geert Mak. This blog will end when I finish the book.

Is this a new genre?
Maybe it's at least a new subgenre. If this is not a new idea, it's definitely different. I would call it a, "Graphics added novel." The original text of Willem Elsschot's work is there in its entirety. Dick Matena drew around it.
