Editorial Reviews

Curtis Bradford
The Transposed Heads is all together delightful, worthy as ranked with Tonio Kroger or Death in Venice. It is certainly the most charming of Mann's work. His irony has never been more vibrant; it has never been more tender. Mann has never shown greater insight into love, nor greater kindness for the humanity. The sustained lightness of tone leaves a singleness of impression perhaps impossible to attain in longer works of fiction.�The Transposed Heads is, in short, a restatement in parable form of Mann's intransigent faith in the human intellect. It is also a rich and subtle analysis of the psychology of friendship and love.

Lionel Trilling
The story of The Transposed Heads is at once the quintessence and the reductio ad absurdum of all love triangles.
