The Darkroom of Damocles
The Darkroom of Damocles | Willem Frederik Hermans
5 posts | 8 read | 1 to read
As it forces readers to confront questions of morality and power, right and wrong, The Darkroom of Damocles builds to a stunning conclusion. During the German occupation of Holland, tobacconist Henri Osewoudt is visited by a man named Dorbeck, who strangely proves to be Osewoudts spitting image in reverse. Dorbeck assigns Osewoudt to commit a series of dangerous assignments but things quickly go awry, with Osewoudt eventually killing his own wife. After the war, Osewoudt is taken for a traitor and captured. Osewoudt cannot prove that he received assignments from Dorbeckhe cannot even prove that his doppelganger ever existed.

“De vrouw trok de doek weer recht, deed een stap naar achteren en keek Osewoudt aan. Toen pas zag hij dat het zijn moeder was, ontsnapt uit gevangenschap en nu proberend zich in leven te houden door te lopen venten met een mand gerookte paling.”
Heb dit boek toch al tig keer gelezen maar dít was me dus niet eerder opgevallen!
