    PDF House of Exile MOBI í House of MOBI :´ ↠ renegades bempflingen.de ↠ house kindle, exile kindle, House of download, House of Exile ePUBThis is an interesting and mainly well written biography of Heinrich Mann Thomas Mann's brother and his wife Nelly Kroeger Mann It is primarily about their years of exile as Heinrich was outspoken about Hitler and they were forced to leave Germany in 1933 going first to France and then eventually to Los Angeles Unfortunately Nelly was by this time uite unstable and often drunk and eventually committed suicide in 1944 with Heinrich dying of natural causes a few years laterAs you can probably imagine Thomas Mann features heavily in the book especially with regard to the competitive feelings he had towards his brother as he always felt that he was a better writer than Heinrich Thomas is certainly famous among English speaking readers and most of Heinrich's books were never translated into EnglishI only really had two problems with the book The first being that for most of the book Virginia Woolf is mentioned on almost every page with diary entries and musings etc
