Herman Koch is a Dutch writer whose writing certainly has a class that can stand on its own. Summer House with Swimming Pool by Herman Koch is an exquisite prose whose characters impresses strongly on our mind. The lively human landscape Koch creates seems innocent of any big comment on life and he ...
