The Magician

Colm Tóibín
The Magician tells the story of Thomas Mann, whose life was filled with great acclaim and contradiction. Finding himself on the wrong side of history in the First World War, cheerleading the German army, he had a clear vision of the future in the second, anticipating the horrors of Nazism. He would have six children and keep his homosexuality hidden; he was a man forever connected to his family and yet bore witness to the ravages of suicide. He would write some of the greatest works of European literature, and win the Nobel Prize, but would never return to the country that inspired his creativity.Through one life, Colm Tóibín tells the breathtaking story of the twentieth century.
