Thomas Mann was a German modernist writer, whose notability to 21st century audiences is secured primarily through Italian filmmaker Visconti's 1971 film adaptation of Death in Venice.
Paul Thomas Mann (June 6, 1875 – August 12, 1955) was a German novelist, social critic, philanthropist, essayist, and Nobel Prize laureate, lauded principally for a series of highly symbolic and often ironic epic novels and mid-length stories, noted for their insight into the psychology of the artist and intellectual. He is noted for his analysis and critique of the European and German soul in the beginning of the 20th century, using modernized German and Biblical stories, as well as the ideas of Goethe, Nietzsche, and Schopenhauer. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas Mann

I've never read any Thomas Mann, and although I know him from the Faust story, I'd like to start with this shorter book. Mainly because it's shorter and because I think it will please me thematically.
