A disease is consuming the body of Hind and Fatima-Zahra Eljadid's mother. It is a slow and painful process of deterioration, and it comes on top of the fighting divorce from her aggressive ex-husband, and on top of fear and poverty. Kruimeldief is a poetic but raw elegy about motherly affection, saying goodbye, looking back and remembering. But also about white corridors, loveless sheets and ... sisterly love.
Hind Eljadid is an Antwerp-based word artist and writer. She won several awards for her performative word art and with her debut she writes a life down. With her critical thinking she is conquering the literary world word by word.
