THE MAGICIAN

À propos

From one of our greatest living writers comes a sweeping novel of unrequited love and exile, war and family. br>br>The Magician tells the story of Thomas Mann, whose life was filled with great acclaim and contradiction. He would find himself on the wrong side of history in the First World War, cheerleading the German army, but have 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 Toibin tells the breathtaking story of the twentieth century.br>___________________________________br>br>***Praise for Colm Toibín***br>br>''A celebration of what novels can do'' Observerbr>br>''Devastatingly human . . . savage, sordid and hauntingly believable'' Guardian br>br>''Tremendous, richly beautiful, wonderful . . . it does everything we ought to ask of a great novel'' Tessa Hadleybr>br>''Subtle and enthralling'' Sunday Times>
