HHhH: "Himmlers Hirn heisst Heydrich," or "Himmler’s brain is called Heydrich," is the story of Reinhard Heydrich, a much-feared Nazi known as the Butcher of Prague, and his assassination in broad daylight by two agents of the British secret service.
This international bestseller and winner of the prestigious Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman is a thrilling and intellectually engrossing blend of historical truth, personal memory, and Laurent Binet's remarkable imagination.
"Readers will recognize why this brilliant work won the Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman—and why an English translation was imperative!" -Booklist (starred review)
"Binet demonstrates without a doubt that a self aware, cerebral structure can be deployed in the service of a gripping historical read. A perfect fusion of action and the avante-garde that deserves a place as a great WWII novel." -Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Flavorwire included HHhH in their list of "10 New Must-Reads for April" and called it "a unique and incredibly compelling reading experience."Read more
