With #MutuallyMann, we would like to create an interactive reading experience and a space for transatlantic conversation in times of social distancing and quarantine.

We, the Thomas Mann House and the S. Fischer Verlag publishing house, would like to invite you to read Thomas Mann’s novella Mario and the Magician over the course of one week and share your thoughts, questions, ideas or favorite quotes with us and the other readers.

And you will not be alone in doing so – we gathered a group of exciting #MutuallyMann reporters, renowned authors and intellectuals, such as Alex Ross, music critic for The New Yorker, Donna Rifkind, author of The Sun and Her Stars: Salka Viertel and Hitler’s Exiles in the Golden Age of Hollywood, Veronika Fuechtner, Professor of German Studies at Dartmouth, Adrian Daub, Professor of Literature at Stanford, Tobias Boes, literary scholar at University of Notre Dame and Andreas Platthaus, head of literature and literary life at Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung to share their thoughts on the book, too!
