BOOKS BY THAISA FRANK

A Brief History of Camouflage

Fiction. Short Stories. Thaisa Frank writes of lives that brush up against one another, but cannot fuse because of their characters' reluctance to be known, reluctance to be loved. A BRIEF HISTORY OF CAMOUFLAGE traces loss of love, elided empathy, and persistent memory in the cycles of knowing and not knowing one another. "My mother fell asleep right away and an ineffable membrane opened between us. I felt her heart and breath, fueled by mysterious powers, love beyond her knowledge of it." (from "Night Visit"). Frank is also the author of SLEEPING IN VELVET and DESIRE, both available from SPD.

Sleeping in Velvet

A Brief History of Camouflage, Thaisa Frank's critically acclaimed first fullscale collection of stories, established her reputation as one of those writers with a special gift for exploring the dreamlike abyss of distances, discontinuities and attractions across which contemporary relationships are negotiated. "This collection of stories", suggested Small Press Magazine, "brilliantly examines the detachment within intimacy which seems to plague men and women today".

Heidegger's Glasses: A Novel

Heidegger’s Glasses opens during the end of World War II in a failing Germany coming apart at the seams. The Third Reich’s strong reliance on the occult and its obsession with the astral plane has led to the formation of an underground compound of scribes—translators responsible for answering letters written to those eventually killed in the concentration camps.Into this covert compound comes a letter written by eminent philosopher Martin Heidegger to his optometrist, who is now lost in the dying thralls of Auschwitz. How will the scribes answer this letter?
