2010 book 258

Thaisa Frank's Heidegger's Glasses
Lovers--and secret members of the Resistance--Elie and Gerhardt supervise a group of Jews living in a weird underground compound and, on bizarre Nazi orders, answering letters from dead people. It's a relatively safe haven from the Holocaust until they receive orders from Goebbels to answer a letter writing by Martin Heidegger to his philosopher/optometrist friend, who has been sent to Auschwitz. This task sets a chain of events into motion that may lead to danger for all of them.

OK, so this is kind of a weird concept if you think about it, but I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen to all the characters. A-.

Thanks for reading this book. I think the gift of time is the most precious thing a writer can get. All best,
