The Erika and Klaus Mann Story

In his article Colm Tóibín draws upon Andrea Weiss’s recent biography In the Shadow of the Magic Mountain: The Erika and Klaus Mann Story to describe the unconventional and dramatic lives of the Mann siblings, both of whom were talented artists in their own right, and whose unique experiences offer an abundance of captivating new insights on the history of the twentieth century.
