- DescriptionNobel Prize-winner Thomas Mann (1875-1955) is t only one of the leading German velists of the twentieth century, but also one of the few to transcend national and language boundaries to achieve major stature in the English-speaking world.

Leading scholar Todd Kontje provides a succinct introduction to Mann's life and work, discussing key moments in Mann's personal life and his career as a public intellectual, and giving readers a sense of why he is considered such an important - and controversial - writer. At the heart of the book is an informed appreciation of Mann's great literary achievements, including the vel The Magic Mountain and the haunting short story Death in Venice.
