The Dutch television and radio producer, actor and writer Herman Koch is perhaps best known in his native Holland for his role in the hit TV series Jiskefet, a comedy sketch show which ran for a dizzying 15 years. But Koch is no one-trick pony, a columnist for the newspaper Volkskrant, and the author of six novels, he is one of the Netherlands most revered writers and journalists. Despite this The Dinner, astonishingly, is Kochs first work to be translated into English.
Herman Koch recommends
"Fear makes us accessories to murder. Do we want the victim to survive? No, we don't."
