'The best book to come along for some time.' 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

‘Questionable morals in a provoking drama.’ **** OPZIJ

Summer House with Swimming pool

‘An intelligent, psychologically complex novel, exploring the boundaries of morality.’ STERN

Odessa Star

Book The Ditch
‘Herman Koch, the best-selling postwar Dutch writer, shows yet again why he is the master of suspense and open endings.’ **** Humo

The Ditch

‘Koch has mastered all the tricks. He is the master of variety, balance and subtle cliff-hangers. [...] Plot-driven is an understatement: Koch cracks the whip to the very end.’ BOEK

Dear Mr M.

‘The reader soon starts to hope for the know-it-all’s downfall, but Koch takes his time to satisfy that desire.’ de Volkskrant

Thinking of Bruce Kennedy
‘Thinking of Bruce Kennedy shows us Koch at his best.’ Vrij Nederland

Thinking of Bruce Kennedy

‘We think Koch is a great writer. A fantastic anthropologist. He knows our quirks and our weaknesses, our desires and our fears, our poses and our hypocrisy. He has an eagle eye for the small, all-revealing gesture. He has the gift of plain language and, perhaps more importantly, the talent to capture the madhouse he believes the world to be and the pointlessness that he sees all around him in prose that almost always surprises and, yes, very often makes you laugh. That is pretty unique.’ De Standaard

A Brief History of Deceit

‘A novel both hilarious and poignant that turns everything on its head so often that you end up not knowing which is which: fiction or reality.’ GPD

Eating with Emma

‘War at Last is a subtle parody of all post-war war literature.’ de Volkskrant
