Press on Up to Date:

Van Gerrewey proves once again that the intangible nature of love is still the ever-reliable fuel of literature.’ – De Morgen

Up To Date is a strange, not so much pompous as indeed slightly pretentious, fascinating and convincing debut. – De Standaard

This gifted stylist effortlessly alternates between lyrical declarations of love and hatred and caustic social and literary criticism. – NRC Lux
