Koch, Herman. The Dinner
What seemingly begins as a tense dinner between two couples at a posh Dutch restaurant, soon evolves into something much more sinister. Brothers Serge and Paul have come together with their wives to discuss a matter involving their sons: a disturbing video has been leaked on the internet. This video has the potential to become quite the scandal and a strategy to control the damage must be discussed. The brothers soon give up hiding their utter contempt for each other, and the dinner soon becomes a battle of ideologies in which privilege, mental illness and violence all play a part. The Dinner, with its dark humor and expertly-paced plot, is a psychological thriller you won't be able to stop thinking about.
