  • Magnificent... a beautiful, feverish account of obsessive love

    Jonathan Coe, Guardian
  • Featuring lengthy debates between humanist freemasons and Jews-turned-Catholics, a long love-scene written entirely in French and a brilliant hallucinatory journey down the snowy slopes, it merits multiple readings. A novel for a lifetime not just a rainy afternoon

    Guardian
  • A monumental writer

    Sunday Telegraph
  • The greatest German novelist of the 20th century

    Spectator
  • Mann is Germany's outstanding modern classic, a decadent representative of the tradition of Goethe and Schiller. With his famous irony, he was up there with Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and Freud, holding together the modern world with a love of art and imagination to compensate for the emptiness left by social and religious collapse.
