Summary
"Thomas Mann's two eldest children, Erika and Klaus, were unconventional, rebellious, and fiercely devoted to each other. Empowered by their close bond, they espoused vehemently anti-Nazi views in a Europe swept by fascism and were openly, even defiantly, gay in an age of secrecy and repression. Although their father's fame has unfairly overshadowed their legacy, Erika and Klaus were serious authors, performance artists before the medium existed, and political visionaries whose searing essays and lectures are still relevant today."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
A fascinating tale of two brave nonconformists, Erika and Klaus, the two eldest children of Thomas Mann, who were serious authors, performance artists, and political visionaries offers a fascinating view of the literary and intellectual life, political turmoil, and shifting sexual mores of their times
