    House of Exile [Pdf/E–book] An unusual biography as it follows the lives of two literary brothers Heinrich and Thomas Mann The former I have never heard of But many years ago I can remember ploughing through a copy of Thomas's Magic Mountain There are a number of subsidiary characters including Virginia Woolf and Lion Feuchtwangler That name meant something as I can remember that as an adolescent a translation of his Jue Suss sat on the shelves of my local library I

I received a copy of this book through First Reads and I was excited to get my hands on it as the description sounded so interesting Sadly the book doesn t live up to its promise It claims to be biography but if it is it s biography seen through a kaleidoscope dimly The author describes it as a collective biography set in an age of fragmentation and flux If her intent was to convey that sense of fragmentation and flux she certainly achieved that much The book is a series of disjointed impressionistic vignettes not all of which seem to share any apparent connection There are literary uotes sprinkled in between anecdotes imaginings that may be lyrical and vivid but certainly aren t what is normally understood as biography I spent much of the book a bit confused as to what exactly was going on and when The inexplicable story of Solander early on before Carla s suicide is a good example Nominally connected to a skull Mann s sister carries with her it rambles on for several pages for no apparent reason Things got a little concrete and chronological after the first third or so of the book but not enough to make it an enjoyable read and certainly not enough for me to feel I learned much about Heinrich Mann or his unfortunate wife The words imagine and perhaps and let s say that s how it was are sprinkled liberally throughout not something I m used to seeing in such uantity in something that purports to be biography In the end I m not even sure what to call it fiction or non fiction novel or biography I feel like it s a muddle of all of the above and the only thing I can say with certainty is that I read it
