Set in the dreamlike world of a Swiss health sanatorium, here is a story of a young man's enlightenment through his encounters with sickness and death; an elegy to the romanticism of the European bourgeoisie in the days prior World War I.

Review:

"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." (Independent)

Book Description:

This European masterpiece from the Nobel prizewinner explores the lure and degeneracy of ideas in an introverted community on the eve of World War I
