Well the first book has arrived it was published last year though. But is one I was interested in when I first heard about it last year at london book fair from the people at Haus. The book follows three days in 1936 where the writer Thomas Mann after he denounced the Nazis facing up to what he had done and why. This period he didn’t cover in his own diaries so Britta Böhler fills in the gap. Britta herself is an interesting figure being a well known lawyer in Holland representin Volkert van der Graaf the assassin of Pim Fortuyn.
