From the Inside Flap:

Mann began working on The Magic Mountain in 1912, following a few weeks' visit to a sanatorium in Switzerland.  Twelve years later the novel that had begun as a short story appeared in two long volumes.  The war that had postponed the book's completion had "incalculably enriched its content."  Now it was a massive meditation on "the inner significance of an epoch, the pre-war period of European history."  It was an immense international success from the time of its publication.
The Magic Mountain is the story of an unassuming, undistinguished young engineer named Hans Castorp who sits on the balcony of a sanatorium, wrapped in his camel's hair blanket, thermometer in his mouth, naively but earnestly pondering the meaning of life, time, and his love for the beautiful Frau Chauchat.  Among the other characters on this Germanic ship of fools are the malapropian Frau Stohr; Hofrat Behrens, the head doctor, and his hearty but sick-looking sidekick, Dr. Krokowski; Ludovico Settembrini, the enlightened humanist; Han's noble cousin Joachim Ziemssen; and Hermine Kleefeld, who, with her whistling pneumothorax, is the pride of the Half-Lung Club.  In this community organization completely in reference to disease, Hans Castrop achieves a kind of transcendence unimaginable in the world of the "flatlands" below him.

From the Back Cover:

"If novelists are in some degree historians, Thomas Mann was the great historian of the present crisis in Western culture." --F.W. Dupee
