 Wanklanken als stijlkenmerk - Bart van Lierde schrijft vanuit de onderbuik
Het lijkt tevens de literaire beginselverklaring van zijn schepper, de Vlaamse acteur en zanger Bart van Lierde (1974), wiens romandebuut Violist van de duivel onlangs in de boekhandel is verschenen.
Van Lierdes schrijfstijl doet sterk denken aan het disharmonische vogelgekwetter waaruit Leichner zijn inspiratie pleegt te putten.
Een schrijfdocent zou een rood potlood kunnen verslijten met het aanstrepen van alle onbeholpen taaluitingen in Violist van de duivel, en een tweede met het onderlijnen van het soort termen waarmee jongetjes in hun anale fase de taal zo graag verrijken.

Van Lierde's brown eyes play across the humid reaches of the Olympic-size pool, the only one in his hometown of Bruges, a small jewel of a city in the northwest corner of Belgium, near the North Sea.
Van Lierde, by contrast, a former Belgian national champion in the medley, moves sleekly and powerfully through the water, switching with virtuoso ease from the crawl to the backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.
Reading the numbers, van Lierde and Olbrecht concoct a regimen meant to pare all waste and inefficiency from his training, to achieve maximum results with minimal physical effort, to fit van Lierde as specifically as his fingerprints.

 Jean Van Lierde: vriend en raadsman van Patrice Lumumba overleden : Indymedia Antwerpen
Vrijdagavond 15 december 2006 is in Brussel Jean Van Lierde overleden.
In de jaren veertig en vijftig heeft hij een jarenlange strijd gevoerd (hij is er drie maal voor in de gevangenis gegaan) voor het recht om op basis van gewetensbezwaren te weigeren de legerdienst te doen en een alternatieve burgerdienst te vervullen.
Het feit dat hij later in de jaren vijftig vriend en raadgever werd van de Congolese nationalist Patrice Lumumba hem er in de ogen van de godvrezende goegemeente niet onmiddellijk sympathieker op.
