by Thomas Mann
The Buddenbrook clan is everything you d expect of a nineteenth-century German merchant family wealthy, esteemed, established.
Four generations later, a tide of twentieth-century modernism has gradually disintegrated the bourgeois values on which the Buddenbrooks built their success.
In this, Mann s first novel, his astounding, semi-autobiographical family epic, he portrays the transition of genteel Germanic stability to a very modern uncertainty.
