Heinrich Detering’s book uncovers and explores a blank patch on the map of Thomas Mann’s life and work.
This book tells the story of Thomas Mann’s previously unknown connection to the Unitarian church in California – a story that deals with the relationship between politics and religion, public engagement and the role of literature. "Seldom, if ever, have I taken such a lively and militant interest in a religious group," writes Thomas Mann in 1951. Heinrich Detering’s book is packed with discoveries, and goes right to the heart of Thomas Mann's thought and writing in exile. It also features an essay by Frido Mann.
