about this book

Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1929, Mann uses a sanatorium in the Swiss Alps as a microcosm for Europe, which in the years before 1914 was already exhibiting the first symptoms of its own terminal irrationality. Newly rendered into English by acclaimed translator John Woods, The Magic Mountain is a monumental work of erudition, irony and intellectual ferment.
