The Maurizius Case by Jacob Wassermann

Jacob Wasserman’s acknowledged masterpiece of the pursuit of justice is one of the triumphant novels of ideas in this century.

Leonhart Maurizarius, convicted of the murder of his wife, is languishing in prison. His case has been forgotten by everyone except the imprisoned man and his father, who is convinced of his innocence. The story of how the father provokes first the son of the man who prosecuted the case and then the prosecutor himself to reopen and re-examine the mystery is a narrative at once wise in the ways of human behavior and rich in the dramatization of philosophical concerns.

The Maurizius Case by Jacob Wassermann is one of Henry Miller’s favorite books.
