These stories, as direct as Thomas Mann's novels are complex, are perfect illustrations of their author's belief that "a story must tell itself". Varying in theme, in style, in tone,each is in its own way characteristic of Mann's prodigious talents. From the high art of the famous title novella ("A story," Mann said, "of death... of the voluptuousness of doom"), to the irony of "Felix Krull", the early story on which he later based his comic novel The Confessions of Felix Krull, they are stunning testiomony to the mastery and virtuosity of a literery giant.
