Colm Tóibín’s “audacious, profound, and wonderfully intelligent” (The Guardian) work includes an impressive list of novels, short stories, essays, plays, poetry, and criticism. His novels The Blackwater Lightship, The Master, and The Testament of Mary were shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, and Brooklyn was adapted into the popular BAFTA Award–winning film of the same name. He is recipient of an Irish PEN Award, and is currently the Silverman Professor of the Humanities at Columbia University. In The Magician, Tóibín joins research with imagination to present a fictionalized portrait of legendary German author Thomas Mann and his family amidst the violence of early 20th century Europe.
