You don't even need to make a list to see that Peter Terrin is one of the handful of truly interesting authors writing in Dutch.
A flawless novel . . . Monte Carlo is a small masterpiece.
Terrin raises the bar of Flemish literature slightly higher still with this jewel that glitters like a freshly cut diamond. Astonishingly perfect.
From its vividly dramatic opening, this beautiful dreamlike novella had me in its grip.
