Reviews
"[A] crackling firework of comic brilliance. The narrator's self-preoccupation spins so far and uninhibitedly that it inevitably turns into something completely different." --Svenska Dagbladet (Sweden)
"An intelligent and ironic humor that you rarely find in contemporary literature. . . Original and very entertaining." --Kapprakt (Sweden)
"The Dunning-Kruger Effect is vigorous and sparkling proof that questions regarding gender, class and identity politics can be depicted in literary form without delivering empty slogans...I laughed my way through The Dunning-Kruger Effect. There are funny scenes from relationships, couples' dinners, and plenty of philosophizing, and a gorgeous abundance of literary ambition." --Information (Denmark)
"As a millennial of the depicted demographic group...I feel pinpointed by [Stoopendaal's] clear-eyed satire of a generation of 'pretend adults' with a pathological need to justify work that is neither obviously meaningful nor reflective of their desired identity...We have on our hands one of the sharpest portraits of this generation. Stoopendaal has a devilish eye for the laughable and cringe-inducing." --Kristeligt Dagblad (Denmark)
