    This 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
