This is a powerful and necessarily grim narrative of the assassination of a top Nazi in Prague by two secret agents. It operates between genres, being partly scrupulous historical reconstruction and part reflection on the issues surrounding historical fiction and how it should be written, plus anecdotes relating to the author's own search for the truth, in Prague and elsewhere. i'm not sure how far this book should be classified as a novel, but maybe we need to get away from these constraining labels...

I did laugh at the few people complaining about buying a book in French and then complaining about it...

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The first post-modern novel that has made me laugh, cry, recoil in horror, continue turning pages to track the unfolding story. This is no novel written out of Twitter tweets or witty Italo Calvino experiment in narrative forms, but an earnest author grappling with how to access the truth of history and dissatisfied with 'the historical novel' as a way to do it. Almost a blog about him writing the book you are reading, his integrity shows the utmost respect for the people about whom he writes. Fascinating story and deep commitment make it a triumphant new form -- likely to be much emulated in the future.

The book explores what is at stake in writing history, how it comes close to the writing of fiction but how it also involves grappling with the sheer stubbornness of the past to be there, as object of interpretation, as something lost and recovered in fragments. It is ridiculously gripping too. I am enjoying it immensely in the sense that it's an emotional roller coaster, sometimes terrifying in its relentless digging up of a past which is still incredible. It's also a story about courage and the intense meaningfulness of lives lost standing up to violence - meaningful to those that came after them, in part as they don't have to do this work themselves.
