Real Tadzio, Paperback Book



Whilst visiting Venice in 1911 Thomas Mann's eye was drawn to a young sailor-suited boy of almost supernatural beauty, and was inspired to write Death in Venice.

This is a biography of that boy, who went on to lead a life as rich and as full of twists as any piece of fiction.
