Must read in 2014

In Pick of the Week on January 26, 2014 at 4:42 PM


Huffinton Post selected Summer House With Swimming Pool by Herman Koch as one of the 30 books you need to read in 2014.
Koch, the author of The Dinner brings us another insightful-sounding story. This one is about a botched medical procedure, performed by Marc “doctor to the stars” Schlosser, and resulting in the death of actor Ralph Meier. The pair and their families had spent the previous summer together near the Mediterranean – that’s when things started going wrong.
