Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

Awards Winner of AKO Prize for Literature 2014 (Netherlands) -- Short-listed for Three Percent, Best Translated Book Award 2017 (United States) -- Long-listed for Man Booker Prize 2017 (UK) -- Long-listed for Best Translated Book Award 2017 (United States)
NZ Review 'His publisher announced that War and Turpentine was to be a great novel about the First World War. Stefan Hertmans has lived up to that promise...A gem of a novel, full of history, full of life, full of wisdom.' Nederlands Dagblad 'War and Turpentine is a masterfully written account of a dramatic life, a piece of Ghent family history and a beautiful tribute to Hertmans' grandfather, who remained mysterious for so long. It's also probably the best of the books that will be published over the coming five years about the generation of the Great War.' De Tijd 'With War and Turpentine Stefan Hertmans has written one of the most moving books of the year.' De Standaard 'Intuitive guesswork, personal recognition and artistic associations complete a portrait that grows steadily in intensity and coherence...War and Turpentine is a clever, compelling and touching book.' Cobra.be 'It's a masterpiece.' Humo
