"I can smell the sin on your breath"
- May 23, 2020
The Holy Sinner by Thomas Mann. It's good. Really good. The narrator is an Irish monk and he's delightfully pretentious. The story is based around the story of Gregorius, a fellow born of incestual twins who eventually becomes pope. It's shorter than The Magic Mountain and Doctor Faustus and I would recommend it for someone who wants to read a work by Mann after Death In Venice.
