The Invisible Novel

Published by Diogenes as Der unsichtbare Roman
Original Title: Der unsichtbare Roman

A writer is led into temptation by the German Foreign Office.

The novel about the power of conspiracy theories and fake news tells the story of a genuine historical event with mischievous and laconic humour.

Who is to blame for World War I? In 1918 the question becomes ever more urgent. In his villa on Lake Starnberg the bestselling writer Gustav Meyrink receives an offer from the German Foreign Office. Would he be willing – for a decent fee – to write a novel pinning the blame for all the blood spilled on the freemasons? Meyrink, who is actually an unpatriotic writer and yoga practitioner, accepts the advance – and gets himself into hot water.

»Words win wars.«

»The author plays his game with the fact-devout reader – a fun and informative game which doesn’t only relate to the past.«

Karin Grossmann / Sächsische Zeitung, Dresden

»In truth, it’s about fake news. After all, that’s what was happening when the Foreign Minister of the German Reich wanted to buy an author in order to propagandize a political lie. Today, it takes place over Twitter.«

Hadwiga Fertsch-Röver / HR2 Kultur, Frankfurt

»A wonderfully disconcerting book, fantastic in the best sense of the word, and also witty.«

Frank Pommer / Die Rheinpfalz, Ludwigshafen

»Christoph Poschenrieder condenses fact and fiction into a rousing legend.«

Dagmar Kaindl / Buchkultur, Vienna
