Review

A bizarre and beautiful psychodrama about hospitality, control and domination... Overstaying is a joy to read. It's tautly written, caustically witty, and replete with imaginative insights. I'm already excited to read Koch's second book; she is so perceptive, convincing and poised a writer that it makes you feel grateful that such a talent shares your world -- Luke Kennard - Telegraph

A strange, brilliant fever dream... We might think of global conflicts, identity politics, border policing. But Overstaying refuses to give easy answers... It ought to outlast the current conversation about these issues. Given its intelligence, humour and originality, there's no doubt it will - Financial Times

A short novel of huge ambition... Hypnotic and masterly, this is a book that creates its own world, forcing us to look at our own through altered eyes -- Nina Allan - TLS

Better than Kafka, and Kafka was damned good -- Saša Stanišic, author of 'Where You Come From'

Comparing this magnificent first novel to the great Kafka does it no disservice - on the contrary - Neue Zürcher Zeitung

Full of dreamlike symbols of loneliness and alienation. Overstaying has the makings of a classic - Die Zeit

An intense, enigmatic - in the best sense of the word - debut of philosophical force - Süddeutsche Zeitung

A brave debut, remarkable in its literary aesthetics - Deutschlandfunk
