'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)

Eating with Emma

‘War at Last is a book with a headstrong protagonist who, with all his fears and thoughts, quickly wins over the reader. The images are beautiful and powerful. The book’s whimsicality is a large part of its charm.’ Elsevier
