Reviews

'Interweaves a bitter, occasionally darkly comic moral fable with an unforgettable account of the Nazi invasion of the Netherlands... This should establish Hermans as a modern Dostoyevsky' - Publishers Weekly, starred review 'A sly but scorching Dutch masterpiece' - Kirkus (starred review) 'Praise for Hermans' novels' - .. 'A shocking Dutch classic... remarkable... It takes an hour or two to read, but An Untouched House is the kind of book that stays with you for ever' - Guardian 'Hermans is one of the most important European authors of the second half of the twentieth century' - Cees Nooteboom
