Last week I got an email from Erik de Graaf... From myself? No.
I think everybody recognizes it, one day you discover that there is somebody with the same name as you have. My name is not so special in Holland, but it's really a coincidence if there lives somebody somewhere who isn't only named the same, but also is born in the same village.
So that email came from another Erik de Graaf, born in the same village as me, but now living somewhere else. He was confrontated with me when he read a review about my books in a newspaper, some years ago and he bought my books.
Now he's doing a series about namesakes on his own weblog and he has written a very kind piece about me. If you want to read it go to his blog: erikdegraaf.blogspot.com
