Thomas Mann’s claim that Joseph and his Brothers was his masterpiece always took me by surprise. Surely, this book isn’t better than Death in Venice or Magic Mountain, critics respond. Well, perhaps not but it is in the same ballpark and that’s no mean accomplishment. This sweeping, often comedic, novel was a joy to read despite some initial frustrations and one of the most rewarding books I’ve come across in some time. Mann was one of the finest craftsmen to ever assemble a novel and readers will be swept up in his plot and characters. I finished this novel, which clocked in around 1,500 pages, and wanted more. Easily one of the best books I’ve come across in years.
