Product Details

Praise

“A stunning satire of history, politics, and academia…Quirky, yet informative, The Republic is an engaging read.” —The Literary Review

“Amusing…intriguing…in its odd twists, and the places it goes—actual and theoretical—it’s entertaining.” —The Complete Review

The Republic reads like a whirlwind…De Vries leaps between literary genres, from mischievous spy novel to biting campus novel.” —De Morgen
 
“I came across the biggest talent in just about the youngest debut author, in Joost de Vries’s novels Clausewitz and The Republic. Ironic, postmodern, intellectual, in short—highbrow in the way that good literature can (but doesn’t have to) be.” —Arnold Heumakers, NRC Handelsblad
 
“An uncompromisingly intellectual novel that can just as easily be called a matchless social comedy.” —Knack Focus
 
“An enjoyable second encounter with a talented author.” —Elsevier
