Press on The Last War:

It's a kind of cross between Leon de Winter, Harry Mulisch and Arnon Grunberg. - De Morgen

Daan Heerma van Voss is without a doubt the most interesting writer of his generation. Unable to write even one dull sentence, his work is of a scope and maturity one rarely sees in a 30-year old. Saying this writer is 'promising' is abreast of things. That promise has been amply fulfilled. - Herman Koch, author of The Dinner

At last a charachter who acts, instead of numbly watching; grotesque and tragic at the same time. The Last War is a fable in chiaroscuro about how to be human in uncertain times. - De Volkskrant

A story that grabs the reader. Convincing and haunting. - Het Parool


One of the most promising and ambitious writers of his young generation. – NRC Handelsblad
