Press on Adoring Louis Claus:

‘The book reveals something painful and quite ordinary, without Hoogenkamp yelling it in your face. In a literary sense, that is beautiful and effective and justified, and then the actual plot also has something poignant to it too – clever.’ **** – NRC HANDELSBLAD

‘Longing, for advanced feelers.’– DE STANDAARD

‘Hoogenkamp’s ingenious composition, snappy dialogues, agile style and deeply felt psychology are as pretty as a picture.’ – TZUM
