Press on A Word a Word:
The name Frank Westerman stands for a new way of writing literature. – Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
A Word a Word is many things at once: historiography, reportage, drama, opinion. And not to mention literature. This is what good non-fiction can be: a quest that goes far beyond the boundaries of the self. ****- de Volkskrant
Westerman makes you think about ideals and the means to accomplish them. **** - Het Parool
Frank Westerman has a golden pen. He is a born storyteller who uses his narratives as a weapon against further hardening and polarisation. - NRC Handelsblad
Press on Choke Valley:
Choke Valley is the seventh jewel in Frank Westerman’s crown; a great European author, a writer of literature. - De Volkskrant.
Each and every one of the stories Westerman digs up is brilliant. Choke Valley is a real success as a book. The search for and gathering together of stories was an excellent plan that has been very well executed. Enthusiasm is paramount. * * * * NRC Handelsblad.
A great book. Modern, urgent and suspenseful. -Laurent Binet (author of HhhH)
