Thomas Mann and Bernhard Diebold: Correspondence Letters
The author and his critic: Bernhard Diebold, one of the most important literature and theatre journalists of the Weimar Republic, celebrated Thomas Mann, but mistrusted his novels. The Nobel Prize winner reacted elegantly and ironically. And so a scintillating conversation evolved through their letters – about Wagner, The Magic Mountain, emigration and Hollywood. Dirk Heißerer and Hanns Zischler present the new publication in the Archiv-Blätter series.
