“I’ve always known that some day
I’d have to write a novel; it’s too
strong a family habit for me to
escape it.”
As a young girl in Germany,
M ss Mann studied drama under
Max Reinhardt. She became a
playwright with the production of
her satirical revue “Peppermill,”
which was performed more than a
thous-nd times in six countries,
including America.
