Samenvatting



Another unsettling and irresistible literary thriller, set in the world of writing and bookselling, from the internationally bestselling author of THE DINNER. Mr M. is being watched. As a famous writer, this is no surprise, but interest in his work has been dwindling of late. Our narrator takes a keen interest in M's work, and every aspect of his life. But what exactly are his intentions?



As a famous writer, he is no stranger to the limelight, although interest in his work has been dwindling of late. His print runs are smaller than they used to be, as are the crowds at his bookshop signings ...Our narrator clearly takes a keen interest in M.'s work, and indeed in every aspect of his life. But what exactly are his intentions? And to what does Mr. M. owe the honour of his undivided attention? Our narrator seems to be no stranger to murder, while his own story appears to bear more than a passing resemblance to the plot of Mr. M.'s most famous novel: a teacher has an affair with a student, only to be brutally murdered by the girl and her teenage boyfriend. The body is never found. That's the problem with fiction: in real life, bodies have an awkward habit of turning up. Mr. M. has used some artistic licence, and our narrator is not pleased, not pleased at all. And just before he fades into obscurity, he's prepared to give Mr. M. one last review. And it's unlikely to be a rave.

Recensie(s)

A riveting but disturbing [novel] from the richly talented Dutch author who sprang to prominence with his gripping The Dinner . . . Delicately told, in spare, haunting prose, there are echoes of Stephen King's Misery, but this is even more subtle, with a denouement to send shivers down the spine. * Daily Mail * The strands come blackly and brilliantly together . . . The climax is unexpected and very pleasing. * Sunday Times * Koch's [novel] is one of exceptional ingenuity, with two equally compelling threads . . . An absolute page-turner. * Mail on Sunday * Gripped from page one . . . I was on the edge of my sofa. * Grazia * Herman Koch is rapidly becoming one of my favorite writers. His three novels, taken together, are like a killer EP where every track kicks ass. -- Stephen King The calm, sour vigour with which Koch motors along during these verbal slashings is something to behold . . . Bold, provocative, regularly hilarious. * Irish Sunday Independent * Compelling and strange * Lady *
