"Funny, provocative and exceedingly dark, this is a brilliantly addictive novel that wraps its hands around your throat on page one and doesn't let go." - SJ Watson, author of "Before I Go to Sleep"
"Herman Koch has written a sneakily disturbing novel. He lures us into his story with his unfailingly reasonable tone (just acidic enough to be entertaining), and before we know it we've found ourselves in places we never would've consented to go. "The Dinner" is a smart, amiably misanthropic book, and it's tremendous fun to read." - Scott Smith, author of "The Ruins"
""The Dinner" is a riveting, compelling and a deliciously uncomfortable read. Like all great satire it is both lacerating and so very funny... Intelligent and complex, this novel is both a punch to the guts and also a tonic. It clears the air. A wonderful book." - Christos Tsiolkas, author of "The Slap"
"What a tremendous book. I loved every single gripping and strange thing about it." - MJ Hyland, author of "Carry Me Down
"By the end of "The Dinner" you'll have to rethink everything, including who you are and what you believe. This is a book you won't forget." - David Vann, author of "Dirt"show more
