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

‘Extremely suspenseful, skillfully written, surprising, hilarious, indicative of these times.’ VRIJ NEDERLAND

Summer House with Swimming pool

Book Odessa Star
‘Koch proved himself a master at recording absurd trains of thoughts and slapstick situations. Both painful and hilarious at the same time.’ NRC HANDELSBLAD

Book The Ditch
‘Koch has mastered his métier with effortless superiority. Inventive, deceptively clear and full of friction. A publisher’s promise has rarely been so fully delivered.’ **** de Volkskrant

The Ditch

‘Koch demonstrates his great narrative talent.’ DE TELEGRAAF

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 outdone himself. His heroine is beautiful, tragic and believable.’ De Groene Amsterdammer

Thinking of Bruce Kennedy

‘This book delivers a wonderful mix of emotion and humour. From merciless to merciful and back again.’ De Morgen

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

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