About the Book.
Set on a single day in Golden Twenties Berlin, My Red Heaven imagines a host of various historical or imagined figures moving through the city, like Robert Musil, Otto Dix, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Oskar Kokoschka, Vladimir Nabokov, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Käthe Kollwitz, Arnold Schönberg, Alban Berg, and Rosa Luxemburg. And several ghosts!
Drawing inspiration from Otto Freundlich’s painting by the same name, Lance Olsen’s My Red Heaven explores a complex moment in history: the rise of deadly populism at a time when everything seemed possible and the future unimaginable.
