Content descriptions

General Note: "Originally published in the Netherlands as Het diner by Ambo Anthos, Amsterdam, in 2009 ... This translation originally published, in somewhat different form, in Great Britain by Atlantic Books ... London, in 2012." --T.p. verso.
Summary, etc.: Two couples meet for dinner at a fashionable restaurant in Amsterdam. Behind their polite conversation, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened. Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. The two boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act; an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families. As the dinner reaches its culinary climax, the conversation finally touches on their children. As civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple show just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love.
