Following his family biography Die Manns: Geschichte einer Familie, Tilmann Lahme, together with Holger Pils and Kerstin Klein, now presents a selection of family letters. In these largely unknown letters, the individual personalities of the Mann family appear with unusual clarity, and their authentic, refreshing tone paints a striking family portrait. Each letter is thoughtfully placed in context, and a large number of photographs round out the volume.
This volume contains approx. 200 letters exchanged between Thomas and Katia Mann and their six children (Erika, Klaus, Golo, Monika, Elisabeth, and Michael). It provides much of the original source material for Tilmann Lahme’s in-depth family biography; Tilmann Lahme himself has co-edited the collection. More than half of the letters have never before been published or are not widely known; even in Lahme’s family biography they are only quoted in excerpts. All available Mann family letters (approx. 2000) were examined when putting together this volume.
