One day, during the British run of Copenhagen, winner of the Tony Award for best play in 1999, Frayn was presented with a curious package from a London housewife that contained a few faded pages of barely legible German These pages, apparently found concealed beneath some floorboards, seemed to cast a remarkable new light on the mystery at the heart of the play While FraOne day, during the British run of Copenhagen, winner of the Tony Award for best play in 1999, Frayn was presented with a curious package from a London housewife that contained a few faded pages of barely legible German These pages, apparently found concealed beneath some floorboards, seemed to cast a remarkable new light on the mystery at the heart of the play While Frayn began to lose all sense of certainty, actor David Burke, who played Niels Bohr in the London production and had some experience with documents of this sort, followed the action with particularly close interest After the riddle was cracked and the fog had cleared, Frayn and Burke sat down together to ponder the winding trail of the Copenhagen papers.By turns comic and profound, The Copenhagen Papers explores the conundrum at the heart of all Michael Frayn s work human fallibility and the eternal difficulty of knowing why we do what we do.

Comments The Copenhagen Papers

  • Viktoria

    In diesem Buch wird ein Scherz eines Schauspielers mit dem Theaterautor Michael Frayn beschrieben. Es geht um das Thema des Theaterstücks "Kopenhagen" (Gespräch 1941 Werner Heisenberg mit Niels Bohr, bei dem immer noch nicht ganz klar ist, was Heisenberg von Bohr wollte). Heisenberg wurde mit anderen Physikern des deutschen Uranprojektes gegen Ende des Krieges inhaftiert und nach England gebracht. Dort wurden sie 6 Monate festgehalten. Die Engländer wollten herausfinden, ob sie das Wissen hab [...]

    Sorry, my very dear Michael Frayn, but this book is a serious piece of wankery if ever I saw one.There is also a dreadful piece of proofreading, a whole page appearing at page 76 and then again at page 96. Page 76 is entirely missing, it is correctly placed at p. 96, should you possibly care.But I can see that you don't.

    C’e’ qualcosa di piu’ potenzialmente esplosivo di due amici che s’ingannano a vicenda? Probabilmente no, a meno che, come in questo bel libricino, i due amici si fermino poco prima del disastro.Il primo amico e’, Michael Frayn l’autore di "Copenhagen", il play teatrale di successo dove si mette in scena l’incontro fra Heisenberg, il grande fisico al lavoro sull’atomica tedesca durante la seconda guerra mondiale, e Bohr, il suo amico e collega danese, uno dei fondatori della teori [...]

    Hah! I was hoaxed into reading by the title and synopsis, but I'm glad I was—this is a very nice little piece. It's about a practical joker playing a trick on Serious Playwright Michael Frayn and pulling it off for, honestly, a lot longer than you might expect. I think my favorite part was reading about the way these two men each took pains to spare the other embarrassment when the jig was up.Anyway, it's good to know that there are people out there as gullible as I am. it makes me want to for [...]


  • Cara

    This book is based on the play Copenhagen, also by Frayn. I recommend you read or watch it shortly before reading this book so you can understand all the references it makes to the play. Frayn takes the concept of perception, the central theme of the play, and explores it in a much more personal, but also light-hearted level, within this book.


  • Yumna

    Haven't read anything else by Frayn, but if this is the kind of stuff he has to offer, I'd love to read more! Haven't read such a funny, entertaining and engaging book in ages! I was rolling with laughter! Loved it!


  • Paula Geist

    The play based on a hoax perpetrated against Frayn, the author of Copenhagen If you like Copenhagen, you should read this too. However, this book doesn't stand up well by itself.


  • Andi

    A quick, light read. I found it to be the most delightful kind of nonfiction; reading was like hearing one crazy story told by two of my most interesting friends. Prepare to have your mind messed with.


  • Eric

    A fun read - based on a true story - with a few twists. Read it immediately after reading Frayn's play Copenhagen for full effect.


  • Maggie

    I would kill anyone who did this to me, even though I'm against killing in this circumstance totally excusable.


  • Yumna M.Usmani

    great read! love it!


  • Brenda Stahl

    I'm currently burning through all of the Copenhagen series and Michael Frayn - you are hilarious. The hoax about uncovering the mysterious papers and how this ensconced that little town was comically riveting. No wonder Copenhagen won the Tony :)
