More Description

Shortlisted for the "Independent" Foreign Fiction Prize, 2008

"Delightful . . . gently, deceptively provocative."--"The Observer"

"Full of depth and allusion . . . wonderfully absurd humour."--"The Independent on Sunday"

Inspired by Thomas Mann's "The Magic Mountain," "Castorp" recounts Hans Castorp's student years in Gdansk, Poland. Pawel Huelle imagines what happened when Castorp encounters people, events, and ideas that anticipate the years to come, including an enigmatic woman who becomes his obsession.

Set at the dawn of the twentieth century, "Castorp" conveys with elegant restraint the accelerating pressure as Europe hurtles toward the First World War.

Pawel Huelle is a novelist, playwright, and newspaper columnist. He lives in Gdansk, Poland. His previous novels include "Mercedes-Benz."
