This is an auction for LITTLE HERR FRIEDMANN & OTHER STORIES by Thomas Mann.

From Wikipedia:

"German essayist, cultural critic, and novelist, Thomas Mann was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1929. Among his most famous works are Buddenbrooks, published when he was just twenty-six, The Magic Mountain, and Doctor Faustus... LITTLE HERR FRIEDMANN & OTHER STORIES is a selection of work taken from his highly acclaimed collection "Stories of a Lifetime", written by one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century. In elegant prose, Mann explores such eternal themes as: individuals forced into the extremes of their existence, isolation and the artist's tentative position in the harsh world, the realization of one's true nature. ..."

More on Wikipedia. review:

"FIVE STARS!!! Sixteen quite short stories by Mann, written between 1896-1911 and taken from the larger collection 'Stories of a Lifetime'.
Over just a few pages, Mann succeeds in bringing a character or situation vividly to life: we meet men who are outsiders, ridiculed by others - in two stories (horribly) by the women they adore, while the third such victim, jeered at even by children when he goes out, decides to buy a dog, who at last will be his subordinate... In other stories Mann considers how one becomes disillusioned with life or slides into a dilettante lifestyle... And we meet various other characters: the wife, consistently shamed by her flirtatious husband's behaviour; the wretched drunk, visiting his deceased family in the churchyard; the twin sister and brother with an unhealthy obsession for each other... A fascinating read."
