Heidegger\'s Glasses

Heidegger's Glasses

(2010)
A novel by

 
Heigegger's Glasses opens during the end of World War II in a failing Germany, when the Third Reich is in shambles. Hitler's strong belief in and reliance on the occult led to the formation of an underground society of scribes responsible for answering letters written to the imprisoned and deceased. A letter arrives at the compound that eminent philosopher Martin Heidegger wrote to his optometrist, kindling a series of events that puts everyone's safety and lives in danger. They embark on a desperate journey, racing to Heidegger's secluded hut in the Black Forest and the death-saturated camps of Auschwitz.

Ultimately, the novel explores the way the dead are remembered and history is presented, with Heidegger's philosophy woven throughout in an easily digestible, albeit multifaceted manner. Thaisa Frank evocatively illustrates the Holocaust through a dreamlike, Alice in Wonderland frame, reconstructing the landscape of Nazi Germany from an entirely original vantage point.
