"Available for the first time in English, 'The Island of Second Sight' is a masterpiece of world literature, first published in Germany in 1953 and hailed by Thomas Mann as 'one of the greatest books of the twentieth century.' Set on Mallorca in the 1930s in the years leading up to World War II, it is the fictionalized account of the time spent there by the author--writing as Vigoleis, his alter-ego-- and his wife, Beatrice, lured to the island by Beatrice's dying brother, who, as it turns out, is not dying at all but broke and under the spell of the local prostitute."--Jacket flap.
