As it forces readers to confront questions of morality and power, right and wrong, The Darkroom of Damocles builds to a stunning conclusion. During the German occupation of Holland, tobacconist Henri Osewoudt is visited by a man named Dorbeck, who strangely proves to be Osewoudt’s spitting image in reverse. Dorbeck assigns Osewoudt to commit a series of dangerous assignments but things quickly go awry, with Osewoudt eventually killing his own wife. After the war, Osewoudt is taken for a traitor and captured. Osewoudt cannot prove that he received assignments from Dorbeck—he cannot even prove that his doppelganger ever existed.

Beyond Sleep is a modern classic of European fiction, a hilarious and captivating story set beyond the edge of the civilized word, as one man approaches a breaking point. The young Dutch geologist Alfred Issendorf is determined to win fame for making a great discovery. To this end he joins a small geological expedition, which travels to the far North of Norway, where he hopes to prove a series of craters were caused by meteorites, but ultimately realizes he's more likely to drown in a fjord or be eaten by parasites. Unable to procure crucial aerial photographs, and beset by mosquitoes and insomnia in his freezing leaky tent, Alfred becomes increasingly desperate and paranoid. Haunted by the ghost of his scientist father, unable to escape the looming influence of his mother, and anxious to complete the thesis that will make his name, he moves toward the final act of vanity which will trigger a catastrophe. A deadpan comedy often subtly calling up the works of Heller or Vonnegut at their best, Beyond Sleep is a unique and illuminating examination of how hard it is to be a true pioneer in the modern world. Beyond Sleep is a masterpiece.

Classic fiction. A Posthumous Confession is narrated by Termeer, a deeply frustrated man who persuades himself that only in murder can he find ultimate satisfaction. Emotionally stunted, thanks to his upbringing by forbidding and condemning parents-they never miss a chance to remind him that he is a worthless mediocrity-Termeer is rapidly living up to their low expectations when, to his own and others' astonishment, he successfully woos a beautiful and gifted woman. But instead of finding happiness in his marriage, he discovers it to be a new source of self-hatred, hatred that he directs at his innocent wife and child. And when he becomes caught up in an affair with a woman as demanding as his own self-loathing, Termeer murders his wife. What is the self? What makes it go permanently, murderously wrong? Marcellus Emants's lacerating exploration of this age-old tragic question looks backward to Dostoyevsky and forward to Simenon, and beyond that to the memoirs of our own day.
