Digital humanities’ is a discipline on the rise. But there still are a lot of prejudices to battle concerning the use of quantitative methods in literary analysis. This article presents an example of the way quantitative data can be used in a stylistic analysis. Our case study is the novel De asielzoeker by Arnon Grunberg. We relate Grunberg’s poetical standpoints on the nature and function of literature to his style of writing. Our article contains two linguistic analyses: an analysis of Grunberg’s use of causal connectives, and an analysis of his verb use. Goal of this research is to give an insight into the possibilities, but also the limitations of quantitative methods in literary-stylistic analysis
