From the website of the publisher Reality Street:

Johan de Wit is a Dutch-born writer in English whose project is to create an absolute poetry of unalloyed language, acting as a rigorous detoxifier to the language centres of the brain. He is a truly avant-garde figure, a genuine explorer of language continents others don’t even know about. He has been published since the 1980s, with a large number of books and pamphlets to his name.
