Even though the short story and novella are the forms at which she excels, Uphoff has also written a fine novel, Gemis (Loss, 1997) which, said the weekly journal Vrij Nederland, ‘Impresses us on every page.’ ‘The spirited and original style gives the story its lightness, the flexibility of the images gives it its weight.’ In 2002 the first of a series of novellas was published, De vanger (The Catcher). For Falling is like Flying (2019) Uphoff has been awarded the Charlotte Köhler Prijs 2020.
