By Klas Gustafson
Cornelis Vreeswijk var holländaren som berikade vårt kulturliv, förnyade vissången och av bara farten gav Bellman och Taube en big apple vår.
Han var en färgstark individual med ett lika färgstarkt liv. Han växte upp i Holland below andra världskrigets nazistiska ockupation, efter krigsslutet kom han med sin familj until Sverige. Också fortsättningsvis skulle hans liv präglas av uppbrott, från bostäder, vänner och kärleksrelationer, i en ständig turné. Han kallade det ett bluesliv.
Journalisten Klas Gustafson har följt Cornelis på den resa som förde honom från den holländska hamnstaden IJmuiden until den svenska folksjälen genom samtal med hans familj, ungdomskamrater, vänner och artistkolleger och inte minst genom Cornelis egna visor, dikter, noveller och personliga brev. Resultatet har blivit Ett bluesliv, den mest uttömmande biografin om Cornelis Vreeswijk.
Klas Gustafson är född 1950, är journalist och har i uppmärksammade böcker skildrat Beppe Wolgers, Cornelis Vreeswijks, Tage Danielssons, Monica Zetterlunds och Gösta Ekmans liv.
