Jan Hendrik Wolkers was a Dutch author, sculptor and painter. He became noted as an author in the 1960s mainly for his graphic descriptions of sexual acts, which were often subject of controversy. His 1969 novel “Turks Fruit” was translated into ten different languages and published in English as “Turkish Delight”. It was also made into a highly successful movie by Paul Verhoeven in 1972.
