Der unsichtbare Roman

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.
