Giveaway - The i Tetralogy

The i Tetralogy
Author: Mathias, B. Freese
Paperback: 380 pages
Publisher: Hats Off Books

Book Description

The i Tetralogy—i, I Am Gunther, Gunther's Lament, Gunther Redux—is the gut-wrenching epic depiction of the dehumanization of man through an incisive observation of three pivotal characters. Each of them, victim, perpetrator, and murderer's son, is inextricably linked by the varying dimensions of their moral nature.

Assaying the monumental impact of the Holocaust, this species-shattering event, the tetralogy elucidates a truth about humanity: the Holocaust has forever defined the species as indelibly damaged, capable on a molecular level of killing and consuming its own. The reader experiences this unvarnished—perhaps axiomatic—truth about humanity, which no revisionist can deny. The reader also ponders the risk in forgetting, in sanitizing, in "sweetening" the Holocaust.
