From Jan Wolkers to Prince Bernhard Junior, from Donald Trump to Hollywood stars like Donald Sutherland and Dennis Hopper and rock stars like Bob Dylan and Billy Preston, the procession of celebrities, with whom Peter Mabelus often also builds a close friendship, seems endless.
In his fourth book, the collection 'Van Kluun tot Clinton', dozens of reports are included, in which Mabelus reports in his well-known, hilarious way of his "encounters" with a number of great people of the Earth.
“Mabelus is a word artist in its purest form.”
“Mabelus is a kicker, displaying great intelligence, an irresistible sense of humor and a thought-provoking cynicism.”
Peter is often jokingly referred to by his friends as "the Forrest Gump of De Lage Landen", after the eponymous protagonist of the film adaptation of Winston Groom's 1985 book of the same name, which was awarded no fewer than six Oscars.
Like Forrest Gump, Mabelus seems to come into contact with people who have played, or play, a crucial role in the (inter)national world of politics, literature, film, music, organized crime, but sometimes also on its own initiative. and art.
