- DescriptionHHhH blew me away... It's one of the best historical vels I've ever come across. --Bret Easton Ellis, author of American Psycho and Less Than ZeroA Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for FictionA Financial Times Best Book of the YearA New York Times Book Review Editors' ChoiceHHhH: Himmlers Hirn heisst Heydrich, or Himmler's brain is called Heydrich. The most lethal man in Hitler's cabinet, Reinhard Heydrich seemed indestructible--until two exiled operatives, a Slovak and a Czech, killed him and changed the course of history.In Laurent Binet's mesmerizing debut, we follow Jozef Gabcik and Jan Kubis from their dramatic escape from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia to their fatal attack on Heydrich and their own brutal deaths in the basement of a Prague church. A seamless blend of memory, actuality, and Binet's own remarkable imagination, HHhH is at once thrilling and intellectually engrossing--a fast-paced vel of the Second World War that is also a profound meditation on the debt we owe to history.
