Material Fatigue among the best books of 2018 in Belgium and the Netherlands

Also I am impressed by Marek Šindelka’s novel “Materiaalmoeheid” (Material Fatigue) that I read yesterday evening in one shot. ‘Material Fatigue’ is about the mourning music of life, reflected in rhythmic sentences as in Schubert’s “Winterreise”. 

— Michiel Krielaars, editor in chief of “Books” at NRC Handelsblad (arguably one of the best Dutch newspapers) on a note at the end of the year.

The famous Flemish magazine Humo has put “Materiaalmoeheid” (Material Fatigue) by Marek Šindelka at no. 3 in their top 12 list of best books of 2018.

Flanders largest magazine Knack has crowned “Materiaalmoeheid” (Material Fatigue – Únava materiálu) as best book of 2018!
