characters House of Exile ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Evelyn Juers ½ 6 characters Download Þ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ½ Evelyn Juers In 1933 the author and political activist Heinrich Mann and his partner Nelly Kroeger fled Nazi Germany finding refuge first in the south of France and later in great despair in Los Angeles where Nelly committed suicide in 1944 and Heinrich died in 1950 Born into a wealthy middle class family in Lubeck Heinrich was one of the leading representatives of Weimar culture Nelly was twe. This is an interesting and mainly well written biography of Heinrich Mann Thomas Mann s brother and his wife Nelly Kroeger Mann It is primarily about their years of exile as Heinrich was outspoken about Hitler and they were forced to leave Germany in 1933 going first to France and then eventually to Los Angeles Unfortunately Nelly was by this time uite unstable and often drunk and eventually committed suicide in 1944 with Heinrich dying of natural causes a few years laterAs you can probably imagine Thomas Mann features heavily in the book especially with regard to the competitive feelings he had towards his brother as he always felt that he was a better writer than Heinrich Thomas is certainly famous among English speaking readers and most of Heinrich s books were never translated into EnglishI only really had two problems with the book The first being that for most of the book Virginia Woolf is mentioned on almost every page with diary entries and musings etc until she finally and famously commits suicide And as far as I can see there was no connection between her and the Manns at all so what her purpose in the book was I have no idea except that both she and Nelly committed suicideThe other problem was that for a fairly lengthy section of the book it is written almost as a diary with very short staccato like sentences some being only a couple of wordsBut all in all it was a fine book and is recommended for anybody who likes literary biographies as I do They are really the only kind of biography that I read Lost Souls uite Swamp Foetus unstable and often drunk and eventually committed suicide in 1944 with Heinrich dying of natural causes a few years laterAs you can probably imagine Thomas Mann features heavily in the book especially with regard to the competitive feelings he had towards his brother as he always felt that he was a better writer than Heinrich Thomas is certainly famous among English speaking readers and most of Heinrich s books were never translated into EnglishI only really had two problems with the book The first being that for most of the book Virginia Woolf is mentioned on almost every page with diary entries and musings etc
