HASH(0x8fdc4f00) out of 5 stars The Unexpected Gifts 8 Nov. 2010
By Linda Sellers - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was prompted to order and read this book after reading his novella "Death In Venice". Growing up in post-Victorian prudish America I was amazed and shocked by its storyline, a very-Lolita story but for a 14 year-old boy. I googled Thomas Mann and found a comment by his wife saying that the events that lead to Death In Venice happened to Thomas Mann, the adult inspiration in the tale, while she and her husband and her brother vacationed in Venice. I digress...I ordered Thomas Mann Diaries and found that he was a repressed 19th century man with very strong homosexual desires, pederasty leanings in particular, and all of his stories in Death in Venice and 7 other short stories are based in part or whole on his life experiences. There are the mundane parts that are reflected in all our daily lives, eating, sleeping, visitors, etc. but in between are his comments about the Treaty of Versailles and the German perspective as it is happening as well as his longing for male love. His descriptions of desirious young males that even include his young teenage son are very prevocative and heart rendering. All in all this was a good book, but not a great one.
