Dirk J. J. Vleugels is a retired barrister who has been living in Indonesia since 1983 and is very happy with his life there.

Underdog Anthology 5 (Six in Five in Four) contains seven of his true stories, written from Dirk’s own experiences. This means he has seven in “Six in Five in Four”, which is a nice touch. They are English translations of some of the stories in Dirk’s Dutch edition of “Feesten Onder de Drinkboom”. He has a further story in Transgenre Dreams.

He is the author of “Es-tu là, Allah?” (in French) and the first ever biography of the Dutch-Indonesian painter Han Snel (in Dutch). All three of his books are published by Leg Iron Books.
