THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER
SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2022 RATHBONES FOLIO PRIZE

From one of our greatest living writers comes a sweeping novel of unrequited love and exile, war and family.

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 Tóibín tells the breathtaking story of the twentieth century.

Recenzii

Subtle and enthralling
The Magician is a remarkable achievement. Mann himself, one feels certain, would approve
This graceful novel is a moving and intimate portrait by one master of another . . . It is a stunning tribute to the great man, and a vital story for now
No living novelist dramatizes artistic creation as profoundly, as luminously, as Colm Tóibín, or conveys so well the entanglement of imagination and desire . . . Reading him is among the deepest pleasures our literature can offer

This is not just a whole life in a novel, it's a whole world - with all its wonders, tragedies and sacrifices. I loved every page of this beautiful and immersive journey into The Magician's mind
The personal and public history is compelling . . . an intriguing view of a writer who well deserves another turn on the literary stage
This vibrates with the strength of Mann's visions and the sublimity of Tóibín's mellifluous prose. Tóibín has surpassed himself
A celebration of what novels can do
Devastatingly human . . . savage, sordid and hauntingly believable
Tremendous, richly beautiful, wonderful . . . it does everything we ought to ask of a great novel
Subtle and enthralling
