THE DINNER – Novel, by Herman Koch

thedinner.cover.1This Herman Koch’s novel takes place in a well-known Amsterdam restaurant. It’s a summer’s evening in Amsterdam, and two brothers (and their wives), meet for dinner and some unsavoury truths emerge. Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. The two boys are united by their single act, an act that has triggered a police investigation. Highly controversial tale of two families struggling to make the hardest decision of their lives. Behind the empty words, terrible things need to be said. Skewering everything from parenting values, The Dinner reveals the dark side of genteel society.
