'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 KingIn the new novel by the author of the world-wide bestseller, The Dinner, Herman Koch turns his brilliantly forensic eye to the subjects of jealousy and paranoia.Robert Walter, the popular mayor of Amsterdam, begins to suspect that his wife is cheating on him with one of his aldermen. Though he is happily married, he has always wondered why his wife, born and raised in a distant country, chose him above his brilliant, good-looking physicist friend Bernhard. When, to add to his concerns, he becomes the subject of accusations relating to his past, at the same time as his parents force him to address issues of mortality, this apparently stable and successful man begins to become consumed by fantasies of jealousy and paranoia.Or does he? Is Robert finally beginning to see the world - and his life - as they are, for the first time?As page-turning and gripping as The Dinner, Koch's latest novel forces the reader to address old and haunting questions: 'Are we only happy and content with our lives insofar as we are in denial? And is it the depressed who see life most clearly?'Praise for Herman Koch'Gripping . . .
