Author. Daughter of the Nobel prize-winning author, Thomas Mann. After completing her primary schooling, she studied piano in Lausanne, Switzerland, and then music and art history in Florence, Italy. Fleeing World War II, she emigrated to New York in October, 1940. There, she began a professional writing career. She received American citizenship in 1952, but returned to Europe shortly thereafter, and in 1958 renewed her German citizenship. From 1954 until 1986, she lived on the island of Capri, where she wrote the bulk of her work. In 1986, she returned to mainland Europe to live out her remaining years near her family.
