(Amsterdam, 1972) while still a student of Dutch language and literature set up Bunker Hill with some friends. This literary magazine attracted attention because of its pert approach and was incorporated by publishing house Thomas Rap. Henderson is a literary all-rounder. For many years he was active as an editor with De Bezige Bij/Thomas Rap, Nijgh & Van Ditmar and Nieuw Amsterdam Publishers, as well as being an editor of the literary pop magazine WAHWAH. This year he settled as an independent editor and writer. He writes reviews for the daily paper Het Parool and De Poëziekrant and writes for the Dutch weekly De Groene Amsterdammer, among others. In addition he is a literary scout for De Bezige Bij/Thomas Rap and takes charge of the 'backoffice' of the Amsterdam City Poet, F. Starik. Henderson regularly hosts literary events.

    Imagined Fathers

    The father of the Colombian writer Hector Abad was killed by the paramilitary; the politically dissident Lybian father of Hisham Matar was abducted in Cairo and seems to have vanished ever since; Carolina Trujillo as a six year old fled Uruguay after her father had been taken prisoner. Jasper Henderson talks with these writers on how they deal with the interrupted relationship with their parents in literature. In English.
