Mathijs Koenraadt /mɑtɛis kunraːt/ (1980) writes about individuals' struggles with the collectives trying to assimilate them. He has authored over a dozen books and translations, including novels, philosophical essays, and works of non-fiction. He is interested in questions concerning the nature of reality, the existence of God, the future of Western civilization, and the negative effects cities have on people's psyches.
The author grew up in the socialist country of The Netherlands during the 1980s and 1990s. Accused of 'wrongthink', he felt forced to become an intellectual refugee, seeking higher ground during his travels through Europe, North America, and East Asia. Koenraadt is a polyglot and holds an M.Sc. degree in Management Studies from Wageningen University. He has lived/worked in Amsterdam, Budapest, Munich, and NYC.
