'One of the most moving school novels in Dutch literature.' Vrij Nederland

Save Us, Maria Montanelli

‘A groundbreaking book, clever and important. It is an ext remely funny, ‘shake awake’ book, that we probably need more than we’d like to know. I hope that there will be more translations of Herman Koch’s books. It will be a pleasure.’ Nordjyske (Denmark)

The Dinner

‘Exquisite follow–up to The Dinner.’ HUMO

Summer House with Swimming pool

Book Odessa Star
‘An ingeniously plotted story. Odessa Star reads like a thriller.’ TROUW

Odessa Star

Book The Ditch
‘Herman Koch shows brilliantly how you can see things that might not be there at all, how your imagination can run away with you. The Ditch is an ode to the imagination.’ **** Het Parool

The Ditch

‘Dear Mr M. comes very close to perfection.’ ***** DE STANDAARD

Dear Mr M.

‘Should Tom Sanders disregard that advice? Or should he tackle his son about his behaviour? That is the central dilemma in Easy Living, and Koch gets a devilish kick out of making Tom Sanders vacillate between these two options, and gets an even greater kick out of pushing him into a corner.’ Parool

Easy Living

Thinking of Bruce Kennedy
‘Koch has put it all ingeniously together. His humour is as restrained as his style. A powerful novel, without cannonballs whizzing past your ears. And yet the ending will keep ringing in your head long after you have finished reading it.’ Het Parool

Thinking of Bruce Kennedy

‘Enjoyably true to life with Koch's flowing, ironic style as the familiar background music.’ BOEK

A Brief History of Deceit

‘The story unfolds from one powerful scene to the next, from one penetrating image to another.’ Vrij Nederland

Eating with Emma

‘While reading, you get caught up in the double-mesh nets of Herman’s actions and illusions.’ Trouw
