The story involves a young man (Hans Castorp), who visits a cousin in a sanatorium in the Swiss Alps before World War I. After manifesting symptoms of tuberculosis, he remains there for seven years.

Joseph in Egypt by Thomas Mann( Book )

19 editions published between 1938 and 1945 in 3 languages and held by 1,782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph is brought into Egypt by the traders, and he is sold to Potiphar, and in this new environment, he establishes himself as a trusted, and, later, a high-ranking member of Potiphar's extensive household. The story of Joseph and Potiphar's wife is too well-known to be retold here, but Mann fills his account with the most precise and intricate psychological details: the tension comes not from "what happens next?"--Since we all know what happens next -- but in the painstaking depiction of the development of various characters' psychologies. Rarely, if ever, has sexual desire been presented in more convincing detail than in the depiction of the wife of Potiphar, proud and aloof, lusting after the mere slave Joseph. And in this volume, another theme begins, I think, to develop: it is that word that Potiphar's wife could barely bring herself to say, even after hundreds of pages of agonising over it -- "love". Not necessarily love in a sexual sense, of course -- although that's part of it -- but the love that humanity, despite everything, persists in feeling for one another. The chapter depicting the death of the overseer, Mont-kaw, who had become as another father to Joseph, is among the most moving things I have read in any novel. For all the various complexities and layers of irony, Mann could at times be almost disconcertingly direct. - Himadri Chatterjee
The beloved returns = Lotte in Weimar by Thomas Mann( Book )

23 editions published between 1940 and 1990 in 5 languages and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mann's novelistic biography of Goethe. Lotte in Weimar is a vivid dual portrait, a complex study of Goethe and of Lotte, the still-vivacious woman who in her youth was the model for Charlotte in Goethe's widely-read The Sorrows of Young Werther. Lotte's thoughts, as she anticipates meeting Goethe again after forty years, and her conversations with those in Weimar who knew the great man, allow Mann to assess Goethe's genius from many points of view

Young Joseph by Thomas Mann( Book )

12 editions published between 1935 and 1945 in English and German and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first volume, Tales of Jacob, tells of Joseph's father, Jacob, and acts as a sort of prelude. It presents a very strange world -- a world in which people can bury their own son alive as a sacrifice to the gods. And yet, somehow, the characters are not remote: the mythical and the human are held in balance. Joseph himself emerges in the second volume, Young Joseph, and while the first volume provided ample evidence of Mann's mastery of pacing (despite the generally slow pulse), it doesn't perhaps prepare us for what we get in the closing chapters of the second: when Joseph's brothers imprison him in a pit and then sell him into slavery, the narrative acquires a tremendous forward momentum and leaves one breathless with excitement. - Himadri Chatterjee
