Hubert Lampo on Wikipedia
Hubert Leon Lampo (Antwerp, September 1, 1920 – Essen, July 12, 2006) was a Flemish writer, one of the founders of magic realism in Flanders. His most famous book is De komst van Joachim Stiller ("The coming of Joachim Stiller", 1960), in which a mysterious person, named Joachim Stiller, appears as a redeemer, under circumstances reminiscent of the death of Jesus. Other themes that occur in Lampo's work are the myths of Orpheus and the Holy Grail.
