The Search for Heinrich SchlögelBook - 2014
This novel follows Heinrich Schlogel from Germany to Canada, where he sets out on a two-week hike into the isolated interior of Baffin Island. His journey quickly becomes surreal; he experiences strange encounters and inexplicable visions as shards of Arctic history emerge from the shifting landscape. When he returns from his hike, he discovers that, though he has not aged, thirty years have passed. Narrated by an unnamed archivist who is attempting to piece together the truth of Heinrich's life, "The Search for Heinrich Schlogel" dances between reality and dream, asking us to consider not only our role in imagining the future into existence but also the consequences of our past choices.
