Summer House with Swimming Pool

Shadows. It takes a special writer to lead readers to appreciate the dark side of human nature. Herman Koch is such a writer, and may be an acquired taste. In Summer House with Swimming Pool, we have a group of unsympathetic characters and things are not necessarily as they appear. This is a psychological novel with deep questions at play. To what lengths will a parent go to protect a child? What constitutes murder? The title refers to the setting for a major part of the novel: a vacation home where three different families have come together on holiday. Suspend judgment, pay attention, and you’re likely to enjoy the time spent exploring some dimensions of the dark side of our nature.
