Death in Venice


Saturday, December 06, 2003

Smells can be hard to describe, but a good writer can transport readers pulling them by the nose. Adam Haslett, author of the short story collection You Are Not a Stranger Here, admires Thomas Mann’s Death in Venice for its stench. Everything in the story, he says, is "overripe."
