Subjects Deportation -- Fiction. Summary "First published in and now appearing for the first time in English, Georg Letham: Physician and Murderer is a disquieting anatomy of a deviant mind in the tradition of Crime and Punishment. Letham, the treacherously unreliable narrator, is a depraved bacteriologist whose murder of his wife is, characteristically, both instinctual and premeditated.
Convicted and exiled, he attempts to atone for his crimes through science, conceiving of the book we are reading as an empirical report on himself - whose ultimate purpose may be to substitute for a conscience. His crimes are crimes of passion, and his passions remain more or less untouched by his reason - in fact they are constantly intruding on his "report," rigorous as it is intended to be.
Georg Letham: Physician and Murderer by Ernst Weiss
Both feverish and chilling, Georg Letham explores the limits of reason and the tensions between objectivity and subjectivity. Moving from an unnamed Central European city to arctic ice -- floes to a tropical island prison, this layered novel - with its often grotesquely comic tone and arresting images invites us into the darkest chambers of the human psyche.
