Jos Vandeloo grew up in a family of miners. After the Second World War, he worked as a coal specialist in the mines until 1953, travelling around Europe for this purpose. Meanwhile, he studied Dutch and French literature at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Higher Institute of Fine Arts in Antwerp. After this, Vandeloo became assistant director and later director at Manteau publishers. In the 1960s he was a sports commentator for the BRT for some time. From 1963 Vandeloo lived in Mortsel, where he was a honorary citizen.
He made his literary debut in 1955 with the poetry collection ‘Speelse parade’, but is best known for his novels ‘De muur’ and ‘De vijand’. In 1982 he became a full-time writer.
In his works, Vandeloo usually described the disastrous consequences of modern society, such as loneliness and alienation.
