HHhH

(2012)
A novel by

 
Laurent Binet's HHhH, winner of the Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman, is 'a work of breadth, and absolute originality' (Claude Lanzmann)

Everyone has heard of Reinhard Heydrich, 'the Butcher of Prague.' And most have heard stories of his spectacular assassination at the hands of two Czechoslovakian partisans. But who exactly were the forgotten heroes who killed one of history's most notorious men? In Laurent Binet's captivating debut novel, HHhH (Himmlers Hirn heiBt Heydrich, or Himmler's brain is called Heydrich), we follow the lives of Jozef Gabcik and Jan KubiÅ¡, the Slovak and the Czech responsible for Heydrich's death. From their heroic escape from Nazi-occupied Prague to their recruitment by the British secret services; from their meticulous preparation and training to their harrowing parachute drop into a war zone; from their stealth attack on Heydrich's car to their own brutal deaths in the basement of a Prague church, Binet narrates the compelling story of these two incredible men, rescuing their heroic acts from obscurity. The winner of the prestigious Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman, Binet's HHhH is a novel unlike anything else. A seemingly effortless blend of historical truth, personal memory, and Binet's remarkable imagination, HHhH is a work at once thrilling and deeply engrossing - a historical novel and a profound meditation on the nature of writing and the debt we owe to history.
