Frans Pointl (1 August 1933 – 1 October 2015) was a Dutch writer. Pointl was born in 1933 in Amsterdam, the son of a Jewish mother and an Austrian father. During World War II he went in hiding. He only began publishing later in life; his debut, De kip die over de soep vloog ("The chicken that flew over the soup"), is a collection of autobiographical stories that also describe that time. The book was an instant success and earned him a nomination for the ECI Literatuurprijs.
