With The boy who jumped off the cliff and landed softly, Stefan Raatgever wrote an overwhelming and beautiful story about identity and sexuality. With his striking debut, he is a new important voice in LGBTQ+ literature.

When 19-year-old Alec tries to pass his final exams after a difficult school career, his safely rippling existence is shaken by a new classmate. The maladjusted Björn awakens feelings in him that he has always managed to hide, including from himself. He is unwittingly drawn into a search for his true identity, and for the first time he faces what he has never dared to face before. But the moment he has his coveted diploma up for grabs and with it a ticket to the future, Björn suddenly disappears...

Stefan Raatgever (1980) is a pop journalist and interviewer. After working at Algemeen Dagblad for almost 15 years, he made the switch to Het Parool. As a pop journalist, he spoke to Beyoncé, Paul McCartney, Adele, Amy Winehouse and many others. With some regularity he can be seen and heard in the media as a Eurovision and general pop music expert.
